LATE NIGHT ENCORE
In-Person Screening Only
Set in the iconic Pines, the highly anticipated FIRE ISLAND is a hilariously unapologetic, modern day rom-com showcasing a spirited multicultural examination of queerness and romance. Inspired by the timeless pursuits from Jane Austen’s classic PRIDE AND PREJUDICE and written by Joel Kim Booster, this riotous romp centers around two best friends who set out to have a legendary summer adventure with the help of cheap rosé, hot hook-ups, and chosen family.
Directed by Andrew Ahn (SPA NIGHT) and starring Joel Kim Booster and Emmy Award-nominee Bowen Yang (SNL), FIRE ISLAND features a dynamic ensemble of breakout talents including Conrad Ricamora, James Scully, Matt Rogers, Tomas Matos, Torian Miller, Nick Adams, Zane Phillips, and Margaret Cho. Everlasting excitement, laughs, love, and memories are just a ferry ride away! 105 min.
