The story of ten people and ten colors-The director who turns 90 this year and nine drag queens-

Beppu Bluebird Theater


A movie theater in a hot spring town run by a 90-year-old female director, and the nine drag queens who gather there, each with their own unique life story.

The Beppu Bluebird Theater, located in front of the station in Beppu City, Oita Prefecture, is a long-established movie theater that opened in 1949. Drag queens from all over the country come to support the annual film festival held here. The director, Teru Okamura, smiles as she welcomes them in gorgeous costumes and glittering make-up, and the drag queens, who will celebrate their 90th birthday in 2021, say that the theater is a "comfortable place to be. What is the reason for this?... The camera pointed at the drag queens soon reveals the inner lives of these women, who have various difficulties and reasons for living.
