Harold and Maude

The Black Box (Green Room)

Sunday 5 September, 3.00pm

£5.00

Unbelievably, 2021 marks half a century since Harold and Maude first baffled and beguiled cinema goers in equal measure.

The blackest of comedies and the sweetest of romances, with a flawless cast and a stunning script. It’s taken years for Harold and Maude to be recognised for what it is: one of the most affecting and interesting movies of a decade that knew how to churn them out.

The story of an unlikely romance between 20 year old Harold (Bud Cort) and octogenarian Maude (Ruth Gordon) who meet at a funeral and find the joy in life again, is as startling, moving and funny as get out. All that and a peerless Cat Steven’s track too. You bring the hankies, we’ll bring the popcorn…

We couldn’t celebrate Dylan’s 80th birthday properly in May but this September we’re thrilled to be screening the little seen, much talked about Eat the Document.

After the seminal No Direction Home, Dylan rehired documentary maker extraordinaire DA Pennebaker again for his candle-burning-at-both-ends 1966 European tour with the Hawks (who were soon to morph into The Band).

In the end Dylan rejected Pennebaker’s rough edit, titled Something Is Happening, in favour of his own reworking. Hence was born the notorious Eat The Document.

Dylan’s uncompromising anti-documentary has only been shown a handful of times and never been released on home video. Too bad. It may be a challenging watch at times, but it rewards with some incredible live clips and an idiosyncratically beautiful cinematography. It also offers unique insight into Dylan’s amphetamine-frazzled mid-’60s psyche. We can’t think of a better way to mark the great man’s 80th.

Gay Chorus Deep South – Film Event

The Black Box (Green Room)

In response to a wave of discriminatory anti-LGBTQ laws and the divisive 2016 election, the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus embarks on a tour of the American Deep South.

The tour brings a message of music, love and acceptance to communities and individuals confronting intolerance.

Over 300 singers travelled to Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee, South Carolina and North Carolina. They performed in churches, community centres and concert halls in hopes of uniting us in a time of difference.

The journey also challenges Chorus members who fled the South to confront their own fears, pain and prejudices on a journey towards reconciliation. The conversations and connections that emerge offer a glimpse of a less divided America, where things that divide —faith, politics, sexual identity—are set aside by the soaring power of music, humanity, and a little drag.
