The Hollywood Theatre’s bimonthly series QUEER HORROR resurrects its Valentine’s Day Chucky tradition with one of the best films in the series, CHILD’S PLAY 2 on 35mm! Sponsored by Double Mountain Brewery and Cidery, Finger Bang Nail Salon, and Lincoln Memorial Park & Funeral Home, this 30th anniversary screening is hosted by Portland’s premier drag clown Carla Rossi and opens with a “Small Wonder” sitcom preshow starring Portland drag all-stars Clare Apparently, Valerie DeVille, and Vera Mysteria as Chucky!

Written by out queer filmmaker and Chucky mastermind Don Mancini, 1990’s CHILD’S PLAY 2 finds Andy Barclay (Alex Vincent) in the care of foster parents (Jenny Agutter & Gerrit Graham) after his first encounter with serial-killer-turned-killer-doll Charles Lee Ray (Brad Dourif). But the nightmare begins all over again when a revived Chucky finds his way home–and Andy’s only hope is his street-smart foster sister Kyle (Christine Elise). Co-starring genre legends Grace Zabriskie and Beth Grant, CHILD’S PLAY 2 lays gleefully gory groundwork for one of the scariest, queerest, and still thriving horror franchises of the last three decades.
