Ladies of Burlesque presents “Miss Salome and the Snake.” No bioengineering here, only the real thing! Live out your fantasies courtesy of Zhora (Joanna Cassidy), a former member of the Off-World colony’s Kick Murder Squad, and current featured attraction at the notorious Taffey’s Snake Pit, located in the Fourth Sector of Los Angeles. But, hurry…we hear Zhora may be at risk of retiring soon!
It’s 2019—what better film to celebrate than BLADE RUNNER, Ridley Scott’s dystopian sci-fi neo-noir. Featuring a trifecta of iconic femme fatales—Rachael (Sean Young) and Pris (Daryl Hannah), in addition to Zhora—BLADE RUNNER would go on to influence fashion and design’s intersection with sex in the decades following. An utter failure upon its release, BLADE RUNNER is the ultimate comeback kid, a film hailed today as one in a handful of essential viewings. Coveted and obsessed over, its cult status is cemented, and now that we’ve caught up to its futuristic appeal (the film is set in 2019)—we’ll see just how prescient its predictions were.
Don’t miss out on this immersive screening featuring a BLADE RUNNER-themed performance by the legendary replicant Tanya Cheex!
