The Pride Center of New Jersey, Inc.
The Lavender Cinema Club
Title: The Lavender Cinema Club
Description: The Lavender Cinema Club is a Pride Center of NJ venue for presenting classic mainstream movies that display a gay subtext or sensibility. Many of these movies, especially those prior to the liberating social forces of the late sixties, are ambiguous or veiled in their gay references. As we travel through the last 80 years of movie making, we expect to see period differences in tone and content which will parallel the attitudes of their times. Meets the 4th Sunday of each month at 3 PM at the Pride Center. $5 donation suggested for this event. Our premier selection, by way of introduction to the series, is The Celluloid Closet, a documentary which gives historical perspective to the gay contribution to movie making, and highlights the strategies for entertaining everyone while placating mainstream mores.
