John Waters recorded a “No Smoking” PSA many years ago that was used in movie theaters. I was reminded of it when I saw this tweet – I haven’t seen it in years. As one of the comments notes, it was shown at the Charles Theater in Baltimore which is where I know it from. I’m guessing I first saw it in the late 1970s or early 1980s.
To show you what a small town Baltimore can be, you can get signed Waters books, DVDs and Blu-rays and send him fan mail at a local bookstore, Atomic Books.
I saw Polyester at the Charles on the world premiere day. John Waters and Divine were there.
