Waters' 'Serial Mom' to lure stellar crowd for world premiere


It's another sellout!

No, not the Orioles game at Camden Yards, but that other Baltimore scene-making opportunity, the world premiere of a John Waters movie at the Senator Theatre. The $75 tickets for tonight's 8 p.m. screening and a post-theater party at the Baltimore Museum of Art are sold out.

Kathleen Turner, Sam Waterston and other stars of Mr. Waters' "Serial Mom" will join a crowd of about 800 at the historic theater to watch the movie, which doesn't open to the general public until April 15. The event benefits AIDS Action Baltimore.

Filmed in Baltimore and Towson last year, "Serial Mom" stars Ms. Turner as a cheery suburbanite who also happens to be a murderer and Mr. Waterston as her rather befuddled husband. Also appearing in the movie, and expected for tonight's festivities, are Mr. Waters' current band of regulars: Ricki Lake, Patricia Hearst, Traci Lords and Mink Stole.

A commemorative cement block in the sidewalk in front of the theater will be unveiled before the screening.
