Every month, The Tattered Cover bookstore and Colorado Public Radio presents a free screening of a classic film at Sie Film Center.
Hosted by Howie Movshovitz, CU Professor and film critic, June's film is the documentary "The Times of Harvey Milk."
The free tickets are available at the box office one hour before the screening. Sometimes all tickets are given out quickly at these free screenings, so plan accordingly. I have a feeling this may be one of them, as the film contrasts the increasingly tolerant-if-not-accepting turn in public attitude towards gay life.
I'll be holding up the club's sign in the lobby until 10 minutes before the film starts. See you then!

An exceptional political documentary, The Times of Harvey Milk describes the career of the pioneering gay San Francisco Supervisor, who was assassinated by fellow member of the Board of Supervisors, Dan White. The film itself is one of the early documentaries about gay life in America. It’s playful and smart, and it gives a detailed picture of America and San Francisco at the time.
