Leather Bar “A beautifully made cinematic guide penetrating the membranes of sexual fear that separate us” EXTRA WFC SCREENING & A DOUBLE BILL!!!
William Friedkin's CRUISING with James Franco's Interior. Leather Bar.
Wednesday 17th November
co-hosting with Derailed Film Club Film Club
Ivy Arch Studios, Unit 5B, Ivy Arch Road, BN14
Doors open: 7.15pm , film 7.45pm
Cost: club members (WFC/DeRD) £3.60 / non members £4.50 Causing outrageous controversy on release, and only recently widely available to buy, it’s the film Al Pacino still won’t talk about!

We’re not entirely sure why, he’s absolutely terrific in this; Friedkin’s leather infused masterpiece which sees police officer Pacino hunting a serial killer who’s targeting the gay leather scene in 1970’s New York. The production was dogged by problems; leading to a notorious forty minutes of deleted and subsequently lost footage.

This incredibly rare opportunity to see this controversial film, but then there's more! This double bill also features Interior. Leather Bar. (2013). James Franco and Travis Matthews’ bold and brilliant mockumentary in which they portray film makers working on a production to reimagine and recreate those infamous lost forty minutes. Provocative, explicit, and audacious, Interior. Leather Bar. is a real gem that, for any fan of Cruising, is a must-see.
To see these two films back to back on the big screen truly is an experience you’ll never forget, and it’s certainly not one you’ll find anywhere else!!

We can’t wait to see you on Wednesday 17th November.
