Pride Month Film Series - The Celluloid Closet

  • The Colonial Theatre 227 Bridge Street Phoenixville, PA, 19460 United States (map)

Join us for the second installment of our Pride Month Film Series in partnership with The Colonial Theatre. This week brings a documentary, The Celluloid Closet, highlighting the LGBT community in cinema history.

This documentary highlights the historical contexts that gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgenders have occupied in cinema history, and shows the evolution of the entertainment industry’s role in shaping perceptions of LGBT figures. The issues addressed include secrecy — which initially defined homosexuality — as well as the demonization of the homosexual community with the advent of AIDS, and finally the shift toward acceptance and positivity in the modern era.
