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 “Sammy and Rosie Get Laid” (1987), directed by Stephen Frears, written by Hanif Kureishi, and starring Frances Barber, Ayub Khan-Din, Shashi Kapoor, Claire Bloom, Roland Gift, and Meera Syal.

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: While their London neighborhood erupts with violence sparked by the police killing of a black woman, middle-class couple Sammy and Rosie cope with a visit from Sammy’s father Rafi, a former politician with an unsavory past. He disapproves of their friends and their open marriage. TW: suicide, torture. Running time: 1 hour 41 minutes.
