Stay and mingle after for half-price beer + wine at Quad Bar by showing your ticket for TRAILER CAMP!
One of the great contemporary film essayists, director Jenni Olson (The Royal Road) is also a celebrated film archivist committed to celluloid and preserving unknown works of LGBT history. Her two passions intertwined in this compilation of movie trailers — a riotously hilarious collection of previews that expose the camp undertones bubbling beneath the surface of Hollywood and art films. Starring John Travolta (with the trailers for Saturday Night Fever, Stayin’ Alive, Grease, and Perfect), Mae West (Sextette), Raquel Welch (Kansas City Bomber), Cher (Chastity), and many more, this trip to camp is the perfect break from the winter doldrums.
Part of the Coming Out Again program–a new series in collaboration with Quad Cinema that surveys lesser-known landmarks of LGBTQ film history.
