Hairspray Livens The Castro Theatre For One Night!

On July 24, San Francisco’s The Castro Theatre had one of their special sing-a-longs. This time, it was with 2007’s Hairspray. Besides falling in love with this film’s premise, upbeat songs, kooky characters, and 50s nostalgia, this was the perfect movie for a sing-a-long. It was energetic as usual, with the addition of fun gestures and a goodie bag: whoopy cushions, inflatable microphones, boos for segregations, and hisses for the dastardly villains. But what made this musical different from the previous sing-a-longs (The Little Mermaid, Grease, Mamma Mia) was that the movie dealt with the issues of racism and segregation. That’s perfect for a place like Castro, and the participants marched through the alleys with such convictions and happiness. A great movie to watch at the Castro Theater. Plus, Zac Efron is hot! I lost my voice because I screamed every time I saw him on the big screen.
