DesignforLiving Poly Movie Night


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 at our regular venue, the Bureau of General Services—Queer Division.


On May 1st, the third anniversary of Poly Movie Night, please join us for a re-viewing of Design for Living (1933), written by Ben Hecht (based on the Noel Coward play), directed by Ernst Lubitsch and starring Gary Cooper, Miriam Hopkins, and Fredric March.


We’ll meet at 6:30 pm at the Bureau (in room 210 of The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center at 208 West 13th Street) for pre-screening socializing and start the movie at 7 pm. The event is free, although a $10 suggested donation to help fund future events is much appreciated.


Synopsis: Gilda Farrell, a commercial artist living in Paris, falls in love with a painter and a playwright, two old friends who are sharing an apartment. When she can’t make up her mind which one of them she prefers, she proposes a “gentleman’s agreement”: She will move in with them as a friend and critic of their work, but they will never have sex. But when Tom goes to London to supervise a production of one of his plays, leaving Gilda alone with George, how long will their gentleman’s agreement last? Running time: 1 hour 31 minutes.
