7pm @ Cinema 21 – A Marine Story

With “don’t ask don’t tell” currently all over the media it’s a perfect time for a movie about female soldiers trying to serve to the best of their abilities. And the abilities of lead Dreya Weber are vast, as we should know from her 2006 aerial extravaganza The Gymnast. Weber, who will be in attendance at this screening, plays Alexandra, a decorated officer to returns to her small town where she is quickly recruited to help a troubled teen in boot camp. When the real reasons for her return start to surface, however, both are put in a precarious position.

9pm @ Cinema 21 – Making the Boys

When it was released in 1970 The Boys in the Band was the one of the very queer films to depict homosexuality on a mainstream screen. Lauded by many for bringing gay characters openly to Hollywood and decried by others for its reenforcement of stereotypes there is no doubt that Boys changed the filmic landscape.

Featuring anecdotes from the surviving cast and filmmakers, as well as perspectives by legendary figures from stage and screen, Making the Boys traces the behind-the-scenes drama and lasting legacy of this cultural milestone.
