Description

TUESDAY JULY 16 - WEDNESDAY JULY 17 DOUBLE FEATURE

HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH 7:00 4K RESTORATION!
Genderqueer Hedwig takes her band on the road, sharing along the way the story of her journey from Berlin to Kansas, and of the ex-lover who stole her heart and her music. Writer/director/star John Cameron Mitchell adapted his breakthrough stage play into this undisputed New Queer Cinema classic, creating an indelibly heroic queer icon for the 21st century and delivering a whole show full of catchy, memorable, and moving songs by Stephen Trask. (2001, 91 min, 4K DCP)

+ THE COCKETTES 5:00, 8:45
Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the original gender revolutionaries, The Castro proudly presents the digitally re-mastered 2002 Sundance sensation THE COCKETTES. A flamboyant ensemble of gender-bending hippies, The Cockettes created a series of LSD-fueled musicals in early 1970s San Francisco. When famed author Truman Capote and film critic Rex Reed raved about a Cockettes show to their East Coast chums, it began a madcap saga of grand delusions that led to one of the most anticipated, and most disastrous, theatrical debuts in off-off Broadway history. (2002, 99 min, DCP) Filmmakers David Weissman and Bill Weber will introduce the screenings!
