Peaches will introduce her favorite movies, which will be shown uninterrupted in high definition, with footage from the live shows.
As for Midnight Mass, the upcoming season includes a screening of Xanadu (1980) that will feature drag queen Roller Derby and a sing-along (as if that wouldn't happen anyway), a 10th-anniversary presentation of Showgirls (the 1995 movie Peterson admits to loathing and walking out of with friend Ann Magnuson), and Coffy (1973, a soon-to-be personal favorite of anyone who sees it).
The last thing I ask Grannell is the despised but inevitable question put to all movie mavens. I actually wait until a couple of weeks after our initial interview before finally deciding to e-mail him about it. "Oh god! I really don't think I have just one favorite movie," he responds. "But my favorite John Waters movie is Female Trouble. My favorite slasher is Freddy Krueger. My favorite '80s comedy is Pee Wee's Big Adventure . My favorite actress is Joan Crawford and my favorite movie of hers is Strait-Jacket . I could go on and on.... Do you want me to?"<\!s>*
