TONIGHT: The Range's monthly Dinner Theater to feature "Hairspray" | VIDEO

SAN DIEGO -- As part of its monthly Dinner Theater series, the Range Kitchen & Cocktails will host a screening of the 2007 remake of the hit film "Hairspray."

Starring John Travolta, Michelle Pfeiffer, Christopher Walken, Queen Latifah, Zac Efron and Nikki Blonsky, the campy comedy film follows the story of "pleasantly plump" teenager Tracy Turnblad who teaches 1962 Baltimore a thing or two about integration after landing a spot on a local TV dance show.

The film is a remake of John Waters' 1988 cult classic version of the film, which stars Sonny Bono, Divine, Debbie Harry and Ricki Lake.

In the 2007 version, Travolta plays the part of a Edna Turnblad, Tracy's plus-sized mother who runs a laundry business out of her home. In the original version of the film, this part was played by drag icon Divine.

The film screening is complimentary with dinner and reservations are highly encouraged.

The Range Kitchen & Cocktails, 1263 University Ave. in Hillcrest, has a full dinner menu for guests to choose from.
