June 14 - 16 at the Trylon
On June 28, 1969, police raids at Greenwich Village’s Stonewall Inn led to street riots and the birth of the Gay Liberation movement. We mark the 50 years since that night with two classic LGBTQ films. Promotional support for these screenings is provided by MyTalk 107.1 and The Quatrefoil Library, Minneapolis. Sunday screenings are followed by a Q&A with MyTalk radio host Bradley Traynor and film critic Paul McGuire Grimes.

(1995, 35mm, 102m) dir Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman w/Lily Tomlin, Tony Curtis. This landmark documentary about cinematic representations of LGBTQ folks remains enlightening both for its extensive historical research and for its place nearly a quarter-century in the past. FRI/SAT 7:00 SUN 3:00
(1970, DCP, 118m) dir William Friedkin w/Kenneth Wilson, Peter White, Leonard Frey. As friends meet for a birthday party, an unexpected straight acquaintance shows up, making for an awkward encounter. Matt Crowley’s insightful script, an adaptation of his off-Broadway play, was among the first to revolve directly around gay men and show them as something other than theatrical caricatures.
