  1. We had to make a last minute movie change at the Cinema so we have moved up the start of Cry Baby starting immediately. It was supposed to start next week but things happen. Cry Baby is Johnny Depp’s first movie and is a rock-n-roll musical by John Waters similar to Hairspray. It also takes place in 1950’s Baltimore and is about the rivalry between the hotrod greaser Drapes and the Squares.
