Saturday Afternoon at the Movies – The Birdcage (1996)

Saturday, June 13 @ 3:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Free

Members & guests–free. Registered attendees will receive a link to join the discussion via Zoom. To RSVP, please scroll down.

Watch the film any time before the discussion–or enjoy the discussion and be persuaded to view it after! Directed by Mike Nichols, in this remake of the classic French farce La Cage aux Folles engaged couple Val Goldman (Dan Futterman) and Barbara Keeley (Calista Flockhart) shakily introduce their future in-laws. Val’s father, Armand (Robin Williams), a gay Miami drag club owner, pretends to be straight and attempts to hide his relationship with Albert (Nathan Lane), his life partner and the club’s flamboyant star attraction, so as to please Barbara’s conservative father, Sen. Kevin Keeley (Gene Hackman). Join a group discussion led by Village member Mel Washburn via Zoom at 3:00 PM. Please RSVP by 5 PM on Friday, June 12 to receive a link and instructions for joining the discussion.
