NewFest's annual Pride Week screening and party, in partnership with NYC Pride and SVA Theatre

An annual celebratory screening and party during PRIDE


The 2nd Annual OutCinema will take place on Monday, June 19th, 2017. It will feature the New York Premiere of the uproarious comedy CHERRY POP, starring Bob the Drag Queen, Detox, Latrice Royale, & Tempest DuJour! See your favorite RuPaul’s Drag Race alums on screen and in person!


Get strapped up, tucked in and ready for a whirlwind of antics, one-liners and manic misfires as the troupe at Cherry Pop, a failing drag club, prepare for a raucous night in front of the curtain and backstage. As the newest “Cherry” arrives for her inaugural gig, the legendary but unstable Zaza prepares for her final performance—all the while a bevy of backstabbing queens learn to set aside their differences and embrace what unites them.

A spirited celebration on the Monday of Pride Week in June, OutCinema features a crowd-pleasing film, Q&A and party at Chelsea’s SVA Theatre.

Presented in partnership with NYC Pride and SVA Theatre, this rousing event kicks off a highly anticipated week of jubilant festivities for the city’s LGBTQ community. Launched in 2016, OutCinema highlights a celebratory film and aims to bring together LGBT audiences for a special evening. Join us for a night of film, fun, and festivities! 

In 2016, OutCinema featured Strike a Pose, a rousing documentary about Madonna’s 1990 Blonde Ambition tour dancers and their impact on LGBTQ expression and culture. Two of the film’s subjects, Jose Xtravaganza and Salim Gauwloos, were in attendance for the emotional reunion and buzzy afterparty.
