FRIDAY
TORCH SONG TRILOGY
(Paul Bogart, 1988) Michigan
Theater 7:00
Harvey Fierstein adapted this
film from his own Broadway play.
He portrays a gay female
impersonator who tries to find true
love in a heterosexual world. With
Matthew Broderick and a terrific
performance by Anne Bancroft as
Fierstein's mother.
DRIVE-IN MOVIE NIGHT
Michigan Theater 9:15
Frank Uhle brings another night
of campy classics to the Michigan
Theater. First is High School
Confidential (Jack Arnold, 1958)
about pot-smoking, drag-racing

teams, and with a moral message.
Starring"RusshTamblyn, Mamie
Van Doren, and Jackie Coogan.
Then comes Missile To The Moon
(Richard Cunha, 1958) about
stowaway youths who find the
moon inhabited by gorgeous girls.
Interspersed will be drive-in,
intermission ads and previews for
other campy films. Fun for all!!
THRONE OF BLOOD (Akira
Kurasawa, 1957) MLB 3 7:00 &
9:00
Kurasawa has the unique ability
of bringing Shakespeare from the
stage to the screen, in another
language, in another time setting,
and still keeping it as powerful as
the original. This time it is
Macbeth, with Toshiro Mifune as
the usurper, set among fuedal

Japan. Both beautiful and stirring in
Kurosawa's own style.
THE LAST HOLIDAY (Henry
Cass, 1950) Aud A 7:00
Alec Guiness is told that he has
but a short time to live, so this
farm equipment salesman goes to
live among the rich and famous.
There he lands a contract for a new
invention, but will the profits do
him any good?
THE MAN IN THE WHITE
SUIT (Alexander MacKendrick,
1952) Aud A 8:45
Again Alec Guinness is an
inventor, but this time he comes up
with a fabric that is indestructable,
undirtiable, and could easily
revolutionize the garment industry.
This doesn't please the garment
magnates so they try to stop him in
one of the funniest comedies to
come out of anywhere ever.

GAY SHORTS NIGHT MLB 4
7:00 & 8:30
Many films about gay males and
lesbians have been restricted to a
shorter format due to lack of
financial backing, but that hasn't
prevented some good work from
being done anyway. Tonight's
program includes What Can I Do?,
Foolish Things, and Sleepin'
Round, all by Gus Van Sant, the
director of Mala Noche, among
others.
SATURDAY
FELLINI'S SATYRICON
(Frederico Fellini, 1970) MLB 4
7:00 & 9:30
Nero laughed and fiddled while
Rome Burned. Fellini laughed and
fiddled around as he made this film

about Nero. Fellini, Italy's
bizarrely imaginitive director, gives
his own interpretation of the
debauchery that surrounded Nero's
court way back when.
NOVEMBERMUND (Alexandra
von Grotte, 1984) MLB 3 7:00 &
9:00
This story of one woman's
collaboration with the German
Army in an attempt to save the life
of the woman she loves won the
grand prize at both the San
Francisco and Berlin Lesbian and
Gay Male Film Festivals.
SUNDAY
AMADEUS (Milos Forman, 1984)
Michigan Theater 5:00
This film show just how big
and beautiful movies can be, while
still being powerful. Tom Hulcse
