Join us in celebrating the gay cult classics every month at our Big Gay Matinee! Complete your Sunday Funday - after you brunch and before you hit beer bust - as we look at what makes some films catnip for gay audiences. Come early for pre-show entertainment, drink specials and more hosted by Keith Garcia and friends!

Ali (Christina Aguilera), a small-town gal with a great voice, leaves a troubled life behind and follows her dreams to Los Angeles. She lands a job as a cocktail waitress at the Burlesque Lounge, a once-majestic theater that houses an inspired musical revue led by Tess (Cher), the proprietor. Ali vows to perform there and, with the help of a savvy stage manager and a gender-bending host, she makes the leap from bar to stage, helping restore the club's former glory.
