Iconic Events Releasing will kick off Pride Month with a special nationwide rerelease of MGM's classic 1994 Australian film The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert.

Screenings will take place in select theaters nationwide on Thursday, June 2.

The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert stars Terence Stamp, Hugo Weaving, and Guy Pearce as performers who take their drag show on the road to perform at a small-town casino in the middle of the Australian desert, and for a host of locals throughout the rural Outback. With over-the-top costumes and a soundtrack of camp classics—including Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive" and ABBA's "Mamma Mia"—"Priscilla" is seen as a comedy that celebrates community.

Moviegoers can find locations and showtimes at priscillamovieintheaters.com .
