Exhumed Films and The Mahoning Drive-In are bringing John Waters to the lot! The upcoming three-day festival will feature six filthy films from Waters' filmography, plus a secret bonus feature curated by John himself. All features will be shown on 35mm, and best of all... John Waters will grace the drive-in in the flesh, providing live on-site commentary and nightly Q&A sessions. It's a deranged party, and in addition to screenings with Waters, fans will also have the chance to partake in costume contests, games like the Dirty Shame Bottle Race and Pecker's Pics Photo Contest, prizes, and extensive merch. The VIP Package includes a special photo op with John and rare signed memorabilia.
