Why: The film festival is a blast!

Meeting Description: If you've never been to the film festival before, you don't know what to been missing! Right here in our own backyard you have the opportunity see over 130 movies from all over the world. It only comes once a year for 10 days, so don't miss your chance to see films from Spain, Argentina, Venezuela or elsewhere. All the films that I've chosen are in Spanish with English subtitles. I'm going to be at all of these films, if you'd like to join me I will wait in the hallway just outside of the ticket lobby from 30 minutes to 15 minutes before the film starts. You can buy tickets on the day of the film, but sometimes there is a chance of sellouts. You can check out all the details at the website for the film festival:Cleveland Film Society.

I am posting three different nights that I am going to the film festival. Please join me at any or all of the films if you are interested. Please check all three different dates as the films are different. The first two nights I am going to see two films in a row (come see either one or both), the last one is just a single film. There is a food court, right next to Tower City Cinemas, and restaurants such as Hard Rock Cafe. Parking is free for the event, but you need to bring your parking ticket to get it validated at the theater.

Boystown Showtime at 9:45 p.m.
Foreign Title: Chuecatown


Directed by Juan Flahn
Running time: 93 minutes

Loosely based on a Spanish comic book, BOYSTOWN is a romp through Madrid?s chic gay district, known as ?Chuecatown.? Victor is an insufferably smug real estate agent with the body of an Adonis. His greatest desire is to gentrify some beat-up flats in the heart of Chuecatown so he can rent them to upwardly mobile gay couples. What Victor wants, Victor gets. Only problem is, the flats are still occupied, mostly by little old ladies unwilling to sell. Victor circumvents this obstacle by bumping off the grannies and making it look like suicide. Meanwhile, Leo and Rey, a cuddly working-class couple who love comic books and beer more than fine arts and aesthetics, are left one of the coveted apartments. Seeing as how they?re the wrong kind of gays for Victor?s development, he resorts to seducing Leo to try to coerce him into selling. Reminiscent of Pedro Almodovar?s outrageously colorful films, BOYSTOWN features a chase through a steamy bath house that?s worth the price of admission alone. (In Spanish with English subtitles).
