Along with EL TOPO, PINK FLAMINGOS is one of the films that really cemented the Midnight Movie as a cultural (and commercial) phenomenon. After a brief (and surely unsuccessful) traditional release, this outrageous cult classic was adopted by legendary film programmer/distributor/producer Ben Barenholtz for midnight shows at his Elgin Theatre and the rest is history. PINK FLAMINGOS became a must-see experience for New Yorkers of all varieties and soon spread to midnight screenings across the country. Even today, PINK FLAMINGOS tale of a Baltimore housewife (Divine) on a mission to become “The Filthiest Person Alive” still has the power to rattle an audience… while also entertaining them.
