Garbo, who was both bisexual and Swedish, lends her trademark “ambiguous sexuality, tragic aloofness and boyish playfulness” to her performance as the eccentric, cross-dressing monarch. The screening begins at 7 p.m. Gather early for refreshments and stick around for discussion afterwards. Information at Stonewall-Museum.org.
