Screen Queen Presents: The Boys In The Band
Screen Queen Presents is a new Monday night queer film series hosted by Josh Vogelsong at Suns Cinema. Guests can expect to see a wide range of both mainstream & underground selections, working to cover the entire film & queer spectrum.

MONDAY, AUGUST 6: THE BOYS IN THE BAND (119 MINS, 1970, R)

"The Boys in the Band is a 1970 American drama film directed by William Friedkin. The screenplay by Mart Crowley is based on his Off-Broadway play The Boys in the Band. It is among the first major American motion pictures to revolve around gay characters and is often cited as a milestone in the history of queer cinema." -Wikipedia

The film that started it all, hot on the heels of the Mattachine Society movement, pre-AIDS, post-Stonewall, "The Boys in the Band" is a moving and sympathetic look at the lives of gay men in a time when you could be arrested for public displays of homosexual affection. The film nearly ruined the careers of most of the people involved. Its portrayal of different types of gay men is both uplifting and unflinchingly honest, and almost shocking in its timelessness.
