DOWNLOAD YOUR BINGO CARDS [goes to folder on google drive]
This 1995 train-wreck of a film (or cult classic, depending on your POV) has it all: an ingenue & an aging star, weird orgasms, bisexuality, volcanoes, revenge, Kyle MacLachlan, Gina Gershon, innuendo, eating with gusto, and great lines like “there’s always someone younger and hungrier than you coming down the stairs behind you.”
- Your hosts for Showgirls Bingo are Catherine and Jaene
- We invite you download a bingo card or set of cards
- Watch along with as a group, and chat on zoom while playing bingo
STEP ONE: We will provide downloadable bingo cards. (CHECK OUT SOME SAMPLES HERE). Download your card(s) & you may want to print them out (yeah, on a tree). Makes it easier to fill out. Get your dabbers ready!
STEP TWO: Prepare your drinks (alcoholic or non-alcoholic – you choose!)
STEP THREE: Fire up the Bi+ Arts Zoom channel on your phone.
STEP FOUR: You can stream Showgirls from your DVD, VHS (old-skool!!), or your favourite streaming platform. We can suggest a few sources: Amazon Prime (with MGM subscription in Canada, HBO in the USA, and other plans available elsewhere), Cineplex (Canada), Hulu, or one of these sources. Prepare to press PLAY at 9:10-ish pm (we will yell PLAY), and follow along in Zoom as we play BINGO together.
