Cinema Capitol celebrates Pride Month with ‘The Misandrists’

Published Jun 14, 2018 at 4:00pm

For the next event in its Out After Midnite series and in honor of Pride Month, Cinema Capitol, 230 W. Dominick St., will present the comedy-drama “The Misandrists” at 10:30 p.m. on Saturday, June 16. When an injured male leftist on the run discovers the remote stronghold of the Female Liberation Army — a radical feminist terrorist group whose mission is to usher in a female world order — one of the members takes pity on him and hides him in the basement. However, the man in the basement is just one of many secrets threatening to disrupt the FLA’s mission from within. As director Bruce LaBruce, announces, “here is queer cinema: confrontational, pansexual, gender-fluid, racially inclusive, angry and surprisingly romantic.”

Village Voice writes “Rest assured, LaBruce has thought all this through and has answers that do more than provoke.” The film runs 91 minutes and is not rated. As with all events in the Out After Midnite series, tickets are $8 for all and include a small popcorn, a small fountain beverage and pizza donated by Boyz from Italy (while supplies last). Doors will open for the event at 10 p.m.
