BOUND (1996)

Every month at the Paradise Theatre, curator and host Peter Knegt is offering queers (and anyone who loves them) a classic queer film, special guests and performers, and some good old fashioned drinks and conversation in the Paradise’s stunning lobby bar. Each film is paired with a different local queer artist, who will design an original poster for the screening.

How does a queer cinema club turn two years old? With a two hour film written and directed by two trans sisters, starring two queer icons as two queer women who hatch a scheme to steal $2 million, that’s how!

On April 17th, it will have been 2 years since we had our fateful first screening at the Paradise Theatre. And to wish ourselves — and everyone who has joined us since — a happy birthday, we will be showing the absolutely iconic 1996 directorial debut of Lana and Lilly Wachowski, Bound.

A wildly inventive update on film noir starring Gina Gershon and Jennifer Tilly as two lovers out to take some of that Mafia money, Bound is an outrageous cinematic pleasure of the highest order. Stylish, sexy, suspenseful and so very satisfying, what more could you ask from a 1990s lesbian caper? Well, how about a jaw-dropping performance from the one and only Gushy before hand? And then drinks upstairs at Bar Biltmore after?
