Make A Scene/ Quizabella Rossellini

Tom Grieve, Cinema Editor

18 March 2021 Tickets from £8 — Book now

Manchester’s biggest queer film club has made a name for itself thourough its lovingly over the top tributes to camp and LGBT+ cinema and television. From way-too-interactive screenings of Showgirls and its annual Oscar parties, to last month’s virtual Titanic watch-a-long featuring life drawing and live drag performance, Make A Scene more than lives up to its name.

This month, hostesses Gary Gary Jame Williams and Grace Oni Smith are doing something a little different, with a brand new comedy quiz show as part of Turn On Fest. Billed a testing romp through camp itself, Quizabella Rossellini (named, of course, for the star of iconic gay fave Death Becomes Her) celebrates its contestants knowledge of camp film and pop culture from The Wizard of Oz to Chanel the Parrot.

Presented by Superbia, Manchester Pride’s year-round programme of arts and culture, expect sublime production design, general ridiculousness and a series of increasingly chaotic rounds that could only come from the minds behind Make A Scene.
