Screen Queen Presents: The Cockettes
Screen Queen Presents is a 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.

THE COCKETTES

In the gay San Francisco of the '70s, a flamboyant ensemble of hippies decked themselves out in gender-bending drag and tons of glitter for a series of legendary midnight shows at the Palace Theater. In their 2 1/2 year existence, The Cockettes created 20 shows, and were featured in 4 films. They created a unique burst of cultural experimentation and artistic outrageousness that continues to influence the worlds of theater, music, fashion, gay politics and spirituality, and urban club life.

The Cockettes, a new documentary by David Weissman and Bill Weber, revisits the San Francisco of the late 1960s and early 70s, a time and place so encrusted with legend and cliche that you might wonder if there is anything left to say. It turns out there is quite a lot that the endlessly recycled and diluted images of the storied counterculture have obscured about some of the most interesting and vital parts of the culture itself, which the filmmakers have brought triumphantly to life.  A.O. Scott, The New York Times

Wildly entertaining! Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

An exuberant journey into a barely remembered corner of the psychedelic 60s. David Ansen, Newsweek

This comprehensive and charming film not only recalls those days exactly, it also manages the wonderful trick of taking us back there along with it. Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
