Adding a whiff of “Odorama” to Frida After Dark is Polyester, a comic classic from Director of the Month John Waters.

Hefty housewife Francine (Divine) and her extremely dysfunctional family, are the black sheep of their middle upper-class Baltimore suburb. With her adult movie theatre owner husband cheating on her, their delinquent teenage children running amok, and her cocaine-sniffing superficial mother constantly berating her weight, Francine turns to alcohol. Suddenly, her life and family begin to turn around as she starts a romance with the dashing Todd Tomorrow (Tab Hunter), but is this new romance really all it’s cracked up to be?

Presented with scratch-n-sniff Odorama cards, Polyester is truly a film experience unlike anything you’ve ever smelled.


“Only John Waters would think of marrying Douglas Sirk melodrama to William Castle showmanship.” – Matt Brunson, Film Frensy

“Polyester is definitely one of Water’s best films, and I highly recommend attending an ‘Odorama’ screening for a unique night at the movies.” – Mark Stafford, Electric Sheep
