REVIEWED By Marjorie Baumgarten, Thu., July 26, 2001

When it comes to things cinematic, "there's no place like home" and the audience will sing it loud during this benefit sing-along for the Austin Gay & Lesbian Film Festival and Project Transitions, an agency that provides housing and hospice care for Austin citizens living with HIV/AIDS. Audience members are invited to shout out, dress in costume, and sing along. So get out your gingham and ruby reds and put them to good use for a change. The event includes a champagne reception, costume contest, stage show, and audience participation. Advance tickets are available at the Paramount Theatre box office and Star Ticket outlets (www.startickets.com).
