Romance at the Castro Theatre might be silent on Valentines Day, at least as far as films go, but—over at the Victoria Theatre—the romance will be raucous! As the indefatigable Marc Huestis declares: "It's time to take the wig out of the box and join the fabulous John Cameron Mitchell performing live for this ultimate Valentine's event! Mitchell sings selected songs from Hedwig, as well as other romantic ditties expounding on the origins of love, sex, and…. Followed by screenings of his cult classics Hedwig (Saturday, February 14 at 7:30PM; Sunday, February 15 at 8:00PM) and Shortbus (Friday, February 13, 8:00PM and Saturday, February 14 at 11:00PM). The screenings of Hedwig on February 15 and Shortbus on February 14, 11:00PM will include a live director's commentary on the sexy behind-the-scenes happenings and other tidbits on making these totally rockin' flicks. There will be special guest hosts for each show. So hold on to each other ... hold on tonight."
