SESIÓN CONTINUA: A 24-HOUR NYC PORN THEATRE

ONLINE TIX
FB EVENT

MIDNIGHT FRIDAY, OCTOBER 12  – MIDNIGHT SATURDAY, OCTOBER 13
$20 / COME-N-GO

Before home video became a household thing, porn was a theatrical experience. It was also the first real commercial format that LGBT filmmakers could employ to place their lives on screen. Dirty Looks is thrilled to return to NYC with Sesion Continua, our free-spooling 24-hour porn theatre program, including six rare 16mm print screenings pulled from the archive of porn preservationists, Vinegar Syndrome. Dirty Looks has assembled a free flowing program that queers and diversifies gay porn’s oft-limited lens of focus, while also paying homage to New York’s distinct role in porn and underground film production.

From midnight Friday through midnight Saturday, Dirty Looks will screen rare and classic works of gay, lesbian and bisexual erotica in “sesión continua”-style: no schedules, no set attendance times. Slip in and out or stay a while, come together to witness a public approach towards explicit cinema that blended avant-garde film forms with titillating, haunting, and forbidden erotic imagery.

Jack Deveau’s “Fire Island Fever”

SHOT AT SPAHN RANCH: 1969

LINDA & ABILENE
Dir. Herschell Gordon Lewis, 1969
92 min. USA.
FRIDAY, AUGUST 10TH – 10:00PM
SATURDAY, AUGUST 18TH – MIDNITE

While Linda & Abeliene was filmed with most of the same crew as The Ecstasies of Women- with Shanon Matt returning in a lead role- it was a much more focused and concentrated effort.

Clocking in at an almost unfathomable 92 epic minutes, and filmed on location at the infamous Spahn Movie Ranch (home to the notorious Manson Family in their heyday) this western follows Tod and Abilene after the tragic death of their parents. Unable to deal with the loss and growing increasingly uncomfortable with his feelings of attraction to his sister, Tod high tails it to a nearby town where he meets the lovely Linda pulling suds (among other things) in a local saloon.

A rough and tumble cowpoke by the name of Rawhide overhears that Abilene has been left alone at the ranch and sets off to pay her a visit. Tod will not let this stand and sets out to kill the man who wronged his sister. Meanwhile, Linda and Abilene find they have more in common than they thought.

A savage and sexy western adventure!
