Three Dollar Bill Cinema is already all rested up after producing last month’s Seattle Queer Film Festival and they’re ready to tackle some big events for November and December….including this Saturday’s fun screening of a classic gay film, HEDWIG & THE ANGRY INCH celebrating its 20th Anniversary (since the film was released)!
It’s happening at the Erickson Theatre on Capitol Hill (on Harvard behind the Egyptian Cinema) and not only is it a screening of the beloved John Cameron Mitchell/Stephen Trask off Broadway musical hit, but it’s a SING A LONG so you belt out all your favorite songs from the show including the title track, “Sugar Daddy”, “Wig in a Box” or my personal favorite, “Wicked Little Town”.
It all goes down Saturday, November 13th at 7:30pm with doors open at 6:45pm. There’ll be snacks and a cash bar and they’re encouraging COSTUMES. Snag advance tickets HERE!
There’s more in store from Three Dollar Bill next week when they debut their Virtual Indigenous Showcase Film Festival which can be viewed any time between Nov. 19 through the 29th. It’s a collection of feature films, shorts and a panel showcasing films by indigenous queer people and a thoughtful way to be informed during the Thanksgiving holiday period, a time of year that can be painful for American indigenous people.
AND, 25% of proceeds will be donated to REALRENTDUWAMISH.ORG!
