A Queer Cult Classic at NWFF!

It's hard to believe that in this digitalized age there are still movies that aren't available on any home video format, especially quality movies of cult status like the one our friends at Three Dollar Bill Cinema are presenting on Thursday, April 17th at the Northwest Film Forum as part of their I Love The Nightlife series. Some Of My Best Friends set in on Christmas Eve at a gay bar in Greenwich Village called The Blue Jay and stars such luminaries as Rue McClanahan (the best Golden Girl, in my opinion), Candy Darling, "Buck Rogers" Gil Gerard and Fannie Flagg. someofmybestfriends It starts at 7pm, and the SLOG reports Mr. David Schmader will be introducing the film. If you're up for some socializing and/or getting a little boozy afterwards, there will be a post-party at the Madison Pub (1315 E. Madison St.) with drink specials for ticket holders. The I Love The Nightlife series concludes on Thursday, April 24th with 1968's The Detective starring Frank Sinatra as a cop who investigates the murder of a wealthy gay man. Watch the trailer here.
