OLNY Presents: Evolution of Poly in the Movies
Date(s) - March 23, 2021
7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Open Love NY is excited to welcome the co-hosts of Poly Movie Night, Lisa Mackie and Mischa Lin, for a presentation on how non-monogamy has been portrayed in American cinema and TV over the years. From pre-production code gems like “Design for Living” (1933) to current films like “Professor Marston and the Wonder Women” (2017), there are probably a lot more movies and TV shows about poly than you thought there were. Join us for a guided tour and discussion of the rare and sometimes wonderful visual stories where people sometimes live “hap-poly ever after!”
Tuesday, March 23, 2021, 7:30 pm to 9:30 pm ET
