Make A Scene invite you to their latest high camp interactive film showing, in partnership with Live Cinema UK...Death Becomes Her.

This beloved 90s camp classic sees Meryl Streep and Goldie Hawn play two raging old friends who seem to have been fighting over the same man forever until they go one step too far to keep their beauty (and her man – Bruce Willis) by taking an eternal youth potion! Then forever means forever, even into death!

Bring your worst enemy to a fully interactive showing of the Robert Zemeckis 1992 camp classic with a killer cast and draw dropping (for the time) special effects. Hosted by drag queens Banksie and Beau Blonde as Madline and Helen expect audience interaction, lip sync musical numbers, quoting-a-long, themed photo ops inspired by the film and comedy commentary throughout.

The audience is encouraged to come dressed up in tuxedos and ballgowns or even as your favourite character (Madeline, Helen, Ernest? Elvis!) to add to the atmosphere.

Also included in your ticket is the secret to eternal youth.

Now a warning… (NOW A WARNING!) You’re going to have the night of your life!
