    This weekend a limited showing of John Waters Polyester in it's original Oderama form.

    Polyester stars Waters’s muse Divine as a suburban housewife whose life begins to unravel when she discovers her porno theater-owning husband is having an affair and her teenage daughter is pregnant. And that’s all before Tab Hunter enters the picture! The real star of the film, however, is Odorama. In an homage to the great B-movie showman William Castle, Waters created a scratch-and-sniff card which viewers are instructed to inhale at key points in the film. Dirty shoes! Pizza! Skunk! And worse

    I saw this film in 1981 in Baltimore. Have friends that were extras in the movie too.

    Saw it when it came out (and Pink Flamingos). John Waters is a cultural

    god in Maryland.
