It’s like that movie — Old Hogs? Old Dogs? You know, the one with Tim Allen and John Travolta and they’re hella elderly and they ride motorcycles — it’s like that, but with women and basketball. THAT SAID, the cast is amazing — Wanda Sykes, Daryl Hannah, Virginia Madsen — and I love a cheesy-as-hell movie starring sassy olds. This looks like it could’ve easily come out in the 80s starring Bette Midler and Shelley Long. I’m about it!

Fruitvale StationMetreon
Uh, what else to say but maybe bring all the tissues in your house and maybe an extra absorbent sweater to sob into? This is a movie about Oscar Grant’s last day on earth, which culminates in him being shot by a BART cop at Oakland’s Fruitvale station.

Peaches Christ Productions Proudly Presents The CraftCastro, Saturday only
It’s a special screening of The Craft, with a magical and mystifying pre-show starring Peaches and some of our RuPaul’s Drag Race favorites: Alaska Thunderfuck, Sharon Needles, and San Francisco’s own Honey Mahogany. It will be a truly spooktacular mid-Summer conjuring, and you’d have to perform some black magic on me to miss it.
