Get your wig out of the box and rock out to this iconic queer classic on Governor's Island!


In Association with Film at Lincoln Center
(In-Person Only)
After falling in love with a U.S. Army sergeant, an East Berlin boy named Hansel undergoes a sex-change operation so that he can legally marry his beloved. But the operation is botched, leaving the boy less than a man, but not quite a woman. Deserted in a Kansas trailer park, the boy/girl, now named Hedwig, reinvents himself/herself as a rock star. Based on the hit off-Broadway musical. 95 min.

Free and open to the public with pre-show entertainment kicking off at 7pm and films beginning at dusk.

Featuring an introduction from John Cameron Mitchell prior to the screening!
