Other than the fantastic-yet-underrated Connie & Carla, there aren’t many great examples of movies in which women cross-dress as men.

Not only is this musical comedy extra fun because of the whole delightfully confusing “woman pretending to be a man pretending to be a woman” conceit, it’s just an outright classic ‘80s movie that every gay man must see at least once.
The Oscar-winning Julie Andrews-James Garner flick is this month’s CinéWilde presentation at The Texas Theatre and it’s going to be a great way to kick off the weekend. The night begins with a pre-film discussion and is followed by one of Texas Theatre’s famous post-film parties.

It’s le jazz hotter that way.
