FILM LINEUP

STORME: The Lady of the Jewel Box

Step into the glittering world of Storme DeLarverie, a trailblazing icon whose life defied conventions of gender and race. As a drag king and the butch lesbian protector of NYC in the 60s, Storme’s scuffle with police was one of the sparks that ignited the Stonewall uprising, spurring the crowd to action. Directed by Michelle Parkerson. This film offers a glimpse into the grandeur of the past through archival clips from the past, looking back on the grandeur of the Jewel Box Revue and its celebration of pure entertainment in the face of homophobia and segregation. Runtime: 21 min. Rating: Not Rated

PLAYLAND

Dive into a raucous blend of fantasy and history with Playland, a boundary-pushing exploration of Boston’s oldest gay bar. Directed by Georden West, this transdisciplinary masterpiece takes you on a time-bending journey through the vibrant energy and unapologetic joy of the Playland CafĂ©. Lose yourself in the revelry of a bygone era, where every moment pulses with passion and defiance. Runtime: 1hr 12min. Rated M.
