Free Movie at the Sie (Denver) Film Center

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!

The film's details follow:

The Times of Harvey Milk

USA, 1984, 90 Minute Running Time
Genre/Subjects: Biographical, Documentary, Gay/Lesbian, History, Social Issues

Plays Sunday, June 2nd at 2pm
Hosted by Howie Movshovitz
Presented by Tattered Cover Bookstore and Colorado Public Radio
FREE Tickets available ONE hour before screening

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.

DIRECTOR: Rob Epstein
Screenwriter: Judith Coburn, Carter Wilson, Rob Epstein
Principal Cast: Harvey Milk, Harvey Fierstein, Anne Kronenber

    Great. I had seen the fiction version with Sean Penn and I like d it but the documentary added another dimension to the Harvey Milk story.

    Great film! Very beautiful reminder of the human spirit! I loved the 80's interviews with his friends/peers. Wondering what the back story was on why it took so long for them to create the documentary.

      Ah, so I now see the film was made in 1984. Thus, the 80's interviews. :)

    Really enjoyed the experience. Liked the chance for discussion at the end of the movie.

    This was a touching film about a sad event in San Francisco's history and the struggle for human rights.
