But I'm a Cheerleader is a 1999 American satirical romantic teen comedy film directed by Jamie Babbit. Starring Natasha Lyonne as Megan Bloomfield, a high school cheerleader whose parents send her to a residential in-patient conversion therapy camp to cure her lesbianism. (85 minutes)

8pm | Moonlight 
Moonlight

Described as a “game changer and a flat-out masterpiece,” Moonlight is the timeless story of human connection and self-discovery. It chronicles three defining chapters in the life of a young black man growing up in Miami. (111 minutes) 

Enjoy one film at $10 or both for $15. AGA Members enjoy free screening. 

This Pride Screening is part of the AGA’s programming celebrating Pride Month for the LGBTQ2SIA* community. Please join us for a full day of programs on June 18 for our Pride Day at the AGA—we will continue our Pride Screening and celebrate Pride with activities, music and performances by Drag Queens in the Gallery.

This event is open to all. Please note that the films are rated 14A, which means anyone under the age of 14 needs to be joined by an adult. People who are over the age 14 do not need parental guidance. There is no food or drink, including bottled water, inside the theatre.
