If you’re like most gay men, you can quote nearly every one-liner from the seven-season run of “The Golden Girls.”
More than three decades since the show’s premiere, reruns can still be found on several cable channels, but you've probably never seen Dorothy, Rose, Blanche and Sophia together on the silver screen.
This month, Fathom Events presents “Forever Golden! A Celebration of the Golden Girls” at theaters across the region on Tuesday, Sept. 14 and Tuesday, Sept. 21 at 7 p.m. The two-hour screening features five classic episodes: “The Engagement,” “The Flu,” “The Way We Met,” “Ladies of the Evening” and “Grab That Dough.”
You can even come dressed as your favorite Golden Girl and whip out those zingers with Sophia. Think of it as “Rocky Horror Picture Show” for the gays.
Tickets for “Forever Golden! A Celebration of the Golden Girls” are $14 at FathomEvents.com.
American Gigolo in Coral Gables
After Hours at the Coral Gables Art Cinema, 260 Aragon Ave. in Coral Gables, presents the best films you never saw on the big screen (or maybe you did) from late-night cult classics to foreign favorites and even summer blockbusters on weekends.
On Saturday, Sept. 11 at 9 p.m., catch “American Gigolo,” Paul Schrader’s 1980 feature that elevated Richard Gere to bona fide leading man and eventually People magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive.
Just in case you need a reminder: High-living prostitute Julian Kay (Gere) has it all: the Mercedes, the clothes, access to Beverly Hills' swankiest establishments, and a stable of rich, older female clients. But it all falls apart after he does a favor for his former pimp (Bill Duke) and the trick turns up dead. Julian's actual client won't give him an alibi and police detective Sunday (Hector Elizondo) doesn't believe the gigolo's denials. The one person who can help him is a frustrated politician's wife Michelle (Lauren Hutton), if only Julian could let down his defenses and accept her gesture of love.
Tickets are $11.75 ($5 for After Hours members) at GablesCinema.com.
OUTshine is Live at the Gateway
OUTshine LGBT Film Festival is back at the Gateway Cinema, 1820 E. Sunrise Blvd. in Fort Lauderdale, with “Everybody’s Talking About Jamie” on Saturday, Sept. 11 at 5 p.m.
This stage play turned movie-musical from director Jonathan Butterell is the story of 16-year-old Jamie New, who doesn't quite fit into his working-class British community. Instead of pursuing a traditional career, Jamie (Max Harwood) dreams of becoming a drag queen. Uncertain about his future, Jamie knows one thing for sure — he's going to be a sensation. Supported by his loving mother and amazing friends, Jamie overcomes discrimination and bullying to step out of the darkness and into the spotlight.
