Life will never be the same. Rated PG, for the whole family. Filmmaker Julio Vincent Gambuto will attend! Cost per vehicle- $35 LIFS Members $30
Stage Mother (Rated R) - When conservative, Texas church-choir director Maybelline (Jacki Weaver) inherits her recently deceased son’s drag club, she surprises her closed-minded husband and everyone else she knows by moving alone to San Francisco to save the club from bankruptcy. In this raucous, racy new environment, she begins to open up and find new meaning for her life, even becoming a mother-figure to the club’s flamboyant performers ...until a surprise visit threatens to upend her new life. Thom Fitzgerald’s lyrical comedy-drama boasts a fiery supporting cast, including Lucy Liu, Adrian Grenier, Mya Taylor (Tangerine, PSIFF 2015) and drag superstar Jackie Beat. Cost per vehicle- $30 LIFS Members $25
