This time round they bring a series of Sunday evening cabaret-style screenings at the opulent surroundings of The Hippodrome's Matcham Room. - For this one, get ready for Hugo Weaving playing the divine drag queen Mitzi Del Bra in the flamboyant and utterly fabulous 1994 cult classic directed by Stephan Elliott.
