Drag on Film: A Cinematic History

Drag. Cross-dressing. Gender bending. Whatever you want to call it, it's almost as old as performance itself. And it's been on screen practically since cinema's birth! Early silent works, Victor and Victoria, Some Like it Hot, Cabaret, Tootsie, To Wong Foo, and even Madea- we'll look at how this art form has been portrayed on the silver screen.


80s Summer Film Series: Local Hero

Bill Forsyth put Scottish cinema on the map with this delightfully eccentric culture-clash comedy. Riffing on popular representations of Scottish life and folklore, Local Hero follows the Texas oil executive Mac (Peter Riegert), who is dispatched by his crackpot boss (Burt Lancaster) to a remote seaside village in Scotland with orders to buy out the town and develop the region for an oil refinery. But as business mixes with pleasure, Mac finds himself enchanted by both the picturesque community and its oddball denizens—and Texas starts to feel awfully far away.
