The Kansas City Gay &



This Star-filled Classic is "Gay Cinema 101" for all film fans

THE CELLULOID CLOSET is the film version of author Vito Russo's landmark book by the same name.With clips from over 100 Hollywood movies and interviews with many of the filmmakers and actors who created them (including Tom Hanks, Shirley MacLaine, Susan Sarandon, Whoopi Goldberg, Tony Curtis, and Gore Vidal), THE CELLULOID CLOSET is an epic story -- by turns surprising, hilarious, and disturbing.

THE CELLULOID CLOSET explodes sexual myths and explores how our attitudes about homosexuality and sex roles have evolved through the century. Filmmakers Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman, who have previously won an Academy Award for Common Threads: Stories From The Quilt, bring this book to life.

Introduced by Ames Hall, author of the script for the Heartland Men's Chorus upcoming concert: "The Pink Carpet: Gays, Lesbians and Hollywood"
