Cry-Baby, John Waters' ribald send-up of 1950s rock & roll culture, came hard on the heels of his big mainstream breakthrough, Hairspray. While it doesn't quite attain the level of that gleeful hit, it's still a good deal of fun, played to the hilt by a game cast led by Johnny Depp. Laemmle's Throwback Thursdays series will screen it for one night only in partnership with Eat/See/Hear, which means a tasty catering wagon will be somewhere nearby.
