5:30 PM "Frida" show starts
Biopic of the bold and controversial life of artist Frida Kahlo. Set in Mexico City, this visually evocative film traces her lifelong, tempestuous relationship with her mentor, along with her illicit affairs with Trotsky and various women. Her forward-thinking artistic, political and sexual attitudes are explored as we witness a hard-drinking, passionate woman of the early 1900s, which earned an Oscar nomination for Salma Hayek.
8:00 PM "The Skinny" show starts
Five black Brown University classmates, four gay men and a lesbian, reunite in New York City for a weekend of fun, sins, secrets, lies and drama. Starring Jussie Smollet.
