Coming Out Again

Personal Best

Monday March 26 @ 6:50 pm
Quad Cinema, 34 W 13th St
New York, NY 10011 United States

Dir. Robert Towne, 1982, USA, 124 mins, 16mm

Part of the Coming Out Again program--an ongoing series in collaboration with Quad Cinema that surveys lesser-known landmarks of LGBTQ film history.
