The man who brought us iconic films such as “Pink Flamingos,” “Hairspray” and “Cry-Baby” is now going to bat for a Mission district movie house that’s struggling financially.

The Roxie Theater has created an online donation drive on Kickstarter, and Waters also contributed a video pledge (see video below) to keep the venue alive that can be seen on YouTube. As of Wednesday afternoon, more than $14,000 of the $60,000 goal had been raised.
