Celebrate LGBT pride with the Philadelphia Film Society

There will be Quizzo, a concert and two free movie screenings

The Philadelphia Film Society will be celebrating LGBT pride throughout June, at both the PFS Roxy and the Prince Theater. There will be Quizzo, a concert and two free coming-of-age movie screenings. The movies chosen "honor some of the best of LGBTQ cinema," according to PFS.

Throwback Thursday Quizzo & Movie: "The Birdcage"

On the first Thursday of the month, the Philadelphia Film Society hosts Throwback Thursday Quizzo at the Prince Theater. 

Each month, PFS chooses a popular film from the past to quiz attendees on, then screens the movie after the trivia game. At the end of the night, Quizzo winners receive prizes.

For June, in honor of Pride Month, the movie is "The Birdcage." 

In the 1996 film, starring Robin Williams and Nathan Lane, longtime partners Armand and Albert Goldman agree to act straight so that their son can introduce them to his fiancée's parents. The movie takes a look at love, acceptance and the true meaning of family.

Tickets are required to attend. The event is only for those 21-plus.
