Three Dollar Bill Cinema says
Three Dollar Bill Cinema and Northwest Film Forum have teamed up for a #Pride month series that will make you cheer with delight! It’s an eclectic mix of fan favorites, hosted by avid queer fans ready to share (and defend) their picks.

Kick off each night with a pre-show happy hour in the Northwest Film Forum lobby from 7pm-8pm!

Melodrama fan The Lady B hosts IMITATION OF LIFE...being shown on a 35mm print!

Soap opera-esque in the absolute best sense, this Douglas Sirk classic is one of the great melodramas of the ‘50s, steeped in the race and class politics of the era. A white single mother in show business struggles to maintain her relationship with her daughter as she strives for stage fame; the African-American widow with whom the aspiring starlet shares an apartment has a light-skinned daughter of her own who, to her mother’s dismay, longs to pass for white; the film follows the two mother-daughter relationships as they develop over several years.
