Open Love NY presents Poly Movie Night, a FREE series of feature films that focus on the portrayal of consensual / ethical non-monogamy in cinema. This month we’ll be meeting at the Bureau of General Services—Queer Division which is located on the second floor of The LGBT Center, Room 210.

Please join us for Carrington (1995), directed by Christopher Hampton and starring Emma Thompson (Harry Potter) and Jonathan Pryce (Game of Thrones).

We’ll meet at 6:30 pm at the Bureau for pre-screening socializing and start the movie at 7 pm. The more people come, the more likely we’ll continue the event! The event is free, although a $10 suggested donation to help fund future events is much appreciated.

Synopsis: “Who on earth is that ravishing boy?” asks writer Lytton Strachey when he first sees Carrington. Despite his initial disappointment that Carrington is not a boy, he becomes very fond of her while she falls in love with him. The film is based on the lives of the early twentieth-century painter Dora Carrington and gay Bloomsbury writer Lytton Strachey. Running time: 2 hours.
