OLNY Poly Movie Night: Three of Hearts: Kinsey

 

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.

Please join us for Kinsey (2004), written and directed by Bill Condon and starring Liam Neeson, Laura Linney, and Peter Sarsgaard.

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 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: When Indiana University Professor Alfred Kinsey turns his attention from insects to the scientific study of human sexuality, his controversial work has a profound impact on society’s attitudes toward sex. Along the way, he makes discoveries about himself as well. Running time: 1 hour 58 minutes.
