Park Circus is continuing to release brilliant old films in UK cinemas. Next up, The Adventures Of Priscilla, Queen Of The Desert. 

After it announced that it’s bringing two of Danny Boyle’s breakthrough films back in UK cinemas in May, Park Circus is also getting ready to bring another classic to the big screen. 

From 14th June, you can catch The Adventures Of Priscilla, Queen Of The Desert in cinemas if you missed it back in 1994 when it was first released – or just want to revisit a much-loved classic on the big screen.

The film follows two drag queens and a transgender woman as they board the titular bus Priscilla to journey across the Australian outback. They meet all kinds of characters on their journey from Sydney to Alice Springs for a job at the Lasseters Hotel Casino Resort. 

Hugo Weaving, Guy Pearce and Terence Stamp star in the film, with Stamp playing the transgender Bernadette Bassenger. The film is considered a cult classic these days, and even on its initial release, it received positive reviews. It even picked up the Oscar for Best Costume Design!

The Adventures Of Priscilla, Queen Of The Desert turns 30 this year, prompting the big screen celebrations. A new stage show based on the film has also just debuted in the heart of London. Titled Priscilla The Party, the show is described as “an all-singing, all-dancing immersive party and musical theatre extravaganza”.

The film won’t pay on many screens in the UK and will most likely only pop up in some of the bigger cities, but this is your chance to catch it on the big screen if it’s playing near you. 

The Adventures Of Priscilla, Queen Of The Desert is in select cinemas from 14th June.
