Last year NYC Pride successfully launched OutCinema, in partnership with NewFest and SVA Theatre, with a sold out showcase and party for the rousing STRIKE A POSE. We’re thrilled to bring back this annual celebration of LGBTQ pride and community on film, featuring a specially curated screening followed by an open bar after-party.
Doors Open: 6:45 p.m.
Event Begins: 7:30 p.m.
Don’t miss the New York premiere of CHERRY POP—a bawdy, uproarious comedy about a wild night in a down-and-out drag club.
Starring Bob The Drag Queen, Detox, Tempest DuJour, and Latrice Royale
Directed by Assaad Yacoub
Get strapped up, tucked in and ready for a whirlwind of antics, one-liners and manic misfires as the troupe at Cherry Pop, a failing drag club, prepare for a raucous night in front of the curtain and backstage. As the newest «Cherry» arrives for her inaugural gig, the legendary but unstable Zaza prepares for her final performance—all the while a bevy of backstabbing queens learn to set aside their differences and embrace what unites them. The hilarious ensemble features RuPaul’s Drag Race 2016 winner Bob The Drag Queen, and drag superstars Detox, Latrice Royale, and Tempest DuJour.

Scheduled to appear in person: Bob The Drag Queen, The Only Detox, Tempest DuJour, director Assaad Yacoub, and more to be announced!
