Cinefamily invites you to "come trip the nip fantastic" at this screening of a delightfully dirty, offbeat documentary (case in point: John Waters counts himself a fan). Watch the history of sex in cinema unfold throughout the decades, with both titillating and bizarre depictions of eroticism. The film showcases archival footage, including rare clips from vintage "adults-only" films, coin-drop arcade loops and all manner of old-fashioned, scandalous tidbits. Audience members will leave with original copies of the vintage sex-ed manual "The True Facts of Life," which was sold in the '40s and '50s after screenings of the prostitution film the Wages of Sin. Plus director Frank Henenlotter will be at the theater in person.
