Capitol City Cinema is once again hosting its monthly Drag Show, though this weekend will not be like previous events.

For this socially distanced edition, as it's called on the Facebook event page, part of East High Street will be shut down for the show, which is set for 9 p.m. Saturday at the cinema at 126 E. High St. The show director is Vega Vega, who will be bringing along Brooklynn Burroughs and Pattaya Hart, crowned Miss Gay America 2020-21. Deva Station, a former Miss Gay America, is also expected.

But that's not all to set this event apart from past ones. This weekend will also include a brunch with the queens themselves, hosted by Capitol City Cinema and catered by La Chica Loca with drinks provided by Cork and Board. The brunch is set for 11:30 a.m. Sunday.

Tickets are $20 for the Saturday show and $30 for the indoor brunch on Sunday, which includes the cost of the meal. To purchase tickets or to learn more, visit capitolcitycinema.org/drag-show.
