Today at the The Castro Theater in San Francisco was the world premiere of Jinkx Monsoon as Little Edie Beale and Peaches Christ as Mother Darling in Return to Grey Gardens. It was the best show and cast ever and followed by a screening of the documentary film. The lines were wrapped around the corners for both shows and the meet & greet… not to mention the standing ovation. Best day in San Fran to date. Here are some pictures to enjoy until John Polly posts his exclusive interviews with the cast.

Alex Pettyfer, Channing Tatum, and Joe Manganiello were three of the stars who showed up last night at the Regal Theater at the glittering LA Live complex in Los Angeles for the world premiere of Steven Soderbergh’s male-stripper movie, Magic Mike, which closed the Los Angeles Film Festival. In fact, all the major stars were there, plus Soderbergh, plus teeming, heaving, panting hordes of fans lining the streets. Plus we were there, too, and saw the movie, and can report that it’s a major source of fun and excitement. We plan to see it again. We can’t get over how wonderful the charming Channing is – an effortless actor with an easy comic edge, not to mention easy on the eyes. With this movie coming on the heels of his breezy performance in 21 Jump Street, we figure Tatum to be officially a major Hollywood star by tomorrow afternoon. (Photos: Pacific Coast News)
Yesterday, to promote WOW’s HBO documentary, The Strange History of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, which had its world-premiere screening last night at San Francisco’s Castro Theater, followed by cheers and a standing ovation, the doc’s co producer-director Fenton Bailey answered questions from TV journalist Andrea Mitchell, who termed the DADT passage a “sad episode.” If you like, you can read what Bailey had to say at NewsBusters. The doc airs on HBO September 20.
Says Randy Barbato: “OMG! Too Funny! Fenton has made it onto the Conservative Media Watchdog site!”
