June 23 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Sunday, June 23rd at 3:00 PM
Join us as we welcome back our Century of Cinema series and celebrate the 100th Anniversary of 1924 German silent film, Mikael!

Mikael (1924)
NR – Romance, Drama – 1hr 33m

From the visionary directors behind “Häxan” and “The Phantom Carriage” comes “Mikaël,” a groundbreaking LGBT film that intricately weaves the tale of a renowned painter, his adored young male muse, and a scheming princess, exploring the complexities of love, jealousy, and deception. Against the backdrop of artistic genius, the film delves into the emotional turmoil as the painter’s possessiveness drives a wedge between him and his muse, leading to betrayal and ultimately a poignant reflection on true love. With its nuanced portrayal of same-sex desire and its exploration of the human psyche, “Mikaël” stands as a significant work in both cinematic and LGBT history.

Century of Cinema: An ongoing celebration of the history of the movies! Take a journey with us through the history of film decade-by-decade with our longest-running retrospective series. With special introductions and a one-of-a-kind preshow featuring vintage advertisements, cartoon shorts, trailers and more! FREE TO MEMBERS!
