When it was announced earlier this month that San Francisco's famed Roxie Theater would be launching a Kickstarter campaign with endorsements from such film luminaries as John Waters, Lynn Hershman Leeson, Michael Tully and more, we were promised a video endorsement from the king of trash cinema.

In his video endorsement of the Roxie Theater, which is seeking funds to convert into a sustainable non-profit organization, Waters says that anyone that doesn't support the Roxie is "an asshole" and notes some of the extracurricular activities in which Roxie patrons could engage themselves -- namely, self-pleasure and cruising.
