Open Love NY presents Poly Movie Night, a FREE series of feature films that focus on the portrayal of consensual / ethical non-monogamy in cinema. This month we’ll be at our regular venue, The Bureau of General Services–Queer Division.

Please join us for “Futurama: The Beast With a Billion Backs” (2008), written by Matt Groening and directed by Peter Avanzino and starring Billy West, Katey Sagal, John DiMaggio, and Stephen Hawking.

We’ll meet at 6:30 pm at The Bureau (in room 210 of The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center at 208 West 13th Street) for pre-screening socializing and start the movie at 7 pm. The more people come, the more likely we’ll continue the event! The event is free, although a $10 suggested donation to help fund future events is much appreciated.

Synopsis: 1000 years in the future, Philip J. Fry (originally from the year 1999 when he accidentally froze himself), feeling distraught after a break up with his polyamorous girlfriend, launches himself into the anomaly, a rip in the fabric of the universe. Running time: 1 hour 30 minutes. Animated.
