Prom Queens

Indie art-house Cinema Paradiso will never be filled with more sexual tension than on Thursday. Seriously, how often do you hear about a burlesque/drag show combo! Then, to top that off, prepare your hormones for after the show, when an ‘80s prom will commence. The night kicks off at 8 p.m. with solo and dual acts from burlesque performers Isadora Bull, Francean Fanny, Betty Pickle, Ember Furie, Ananga, Jenna Beth, Miss Cherry Mae, and maybe more. The drag queens include Leona Petra, Desiree Dubois, and Nicole Halliwell. These hot stripteases and special performances will all be ’80s-themed. Prom starts at 10 p.m. — until the fine folks at Cinema Paradiso force your sexual awareness right out of the building. A DJ will be there to spin the ’80s hits. Dress up! Because, of course, there will be prom photos. Throw on a prom dress, tuxedo, any ’80s garb you can find. Perhaps more appealing than the photo trophy, those in costume get drink specials. To attend, it costs ten bucks cash — with all proceeds going to Stand Up 2 Cancer — at Cinema Paradiso, 503 SE Sixth St. in Fort Lauderdale. Visit
