What’s better than having fun and raising money? Adding drag queens of course! Future Mondays at Aurora is proud to present: Spectrum, an alternative queer party and drag show. Come drink, dance, and enjoy drag performances by some of your favorite local queens! Drag performances will start later in the evening, and be on the hour every hour until Midnight. A percentage of proceeds from the bar go to RI Pride.

Tour poster by the amazing Lucy Drury:
In her own words: “The poster’s been on tour too, on top of a mountain, by a dried up creek in the canyons, under the full moon. I found thin sheets of wood and burned the band names with the sun and there are some flowers collaged on from the mountain she was built on.”
September 23rd :: Variable times :: Free
Come enjoy a beverage with historian, Ned Connors, at the Aurora for three extraordinary stereopticon shows. Travel back in time as we revisit late 19th-century Providence, when photographers plied the city to produce stereo images of its streets, squares, waterfront and scenic features. Strap on a pair of 3D glasses to witness life-sized scenes of a dynamic, prosperous Victorian Providence projected onto the silver screen.
5:00-5:45 first show
6:15 to 7:00 second show
7:30 to 8:15 final show
