Polyester Scratch and Sniff Cert. 15 Picture house at FACT

  • Running time86 minutes
  • DirectorJohn Waters

By 1981's POLYESTER, director John Waters had been outraging Middle America for over a decade.

His films featured characters who fought, swore, cross-dressed, slept around and ate dog poo (for real).

How could he continue to push this already trash-stuffed envelope? By engaging the other senses!

And so was born Odorama: a scratch ’n’ sniff card handed out to viewers to enable them to experience even more vividly the exploits of his monstrous, decadent anti-heroes.

With smells ranging from pizza to model glue to – ahem – ‘natural gas’, seeing POLYESTER as its director intended promises to be a truly special experience.
