Happy Pride! Looking for something different to watch for your 2019 celebrations? Our staff has suggestions.

DEATHTRAP

“1982 suspense thriller co-starring the beautiful Christopher Reeve, directed by Sidney Lumet, & based on the Ira Levin play. A bit of a spoiler to put this film in a Pride category, but don’t worry, it’ll still keep you guessing.”–Leslie Means, Marketing Coordinator

A SINGLE MAN

“A 1960’s gay period piece directed by designer Tom Ford! What’s not to love? I love this movie for its quiet rich emotion, exploring how one grieves meaningful relationships when one’s sexual orientation isn’t legitimized by society.The set design and props are characters in and of themselves!” –Davey Davis, Film Program Coordinator

THE TIMES OF HARVEY MILK

“I saw this film in a Gay and Lesbian Literature class while in university during the early 90s. The Times of Harvey Milk was my first true introduction to the challenges, struggles, and pain endured by the LGBTQ community and started me on the path to becoming an ally for the rest of my life. ” –Patrick Hubley, Executive Director

EDDIE IZZARD: DRESS TO KILL

“Eddie Izzard’s special was the first time I can remember seeing a transgender person showcased on the screen as themselves, not a character in a movie or a play. A clever mix of pop-culture and smart anecdotes, with a dose of world history thrown in, Izzard proves that comedy is a powerful form of expression that can break down barriers.” –Josh Levey, Marketing Director
