Los Angeles LGBT Center and Lionsgate® to Host Rooftop Screening in Hollywood of Jamie Babbit’s But I’m a Cheerleader on October 11

LOS ANGELES, September 28, 2020— In celebration of National Coming Out Day and the film’s 20th anniversary, the Los Angeles LGBT Center and Lionsgate present a rooftop screening of the cult classic But I’m a Cheerleader on Sunday, October 11, at the parking garage located at 1400 Ivar Avenue in Hollywood (behind the Cinerama Dome and ArcLight Hollywood), as the latest installment of the Center’s annual outdoor film series OUT Under the Stars.

But I’m a Cheerleader
follows teenager Megan (Natasha Lyonne), whose suburban existence filled with friends, cheerleading, and all-American fun is upended when her straight-laced parents suspect she may be a lesbian. In a panic, they send her to True Directions, a “rehabilitation” camp run by the strict and prudish Mary (Cathy Moriarty), to mount an intervention led by counselor Mike (RuPaul Charles). Directed by Jamie Babbit, the film also costars Clea DuVall, Michelle Williams, and Julie Delpy.

“This campy take of a coming-of-age tale will reverberate with those of us who realized we were LGBTQ after forming a high school crush on someone of the same gender, whether it was their classmate, best friend, or next-door neighbor. But I’m a Cheerleader depicts young love transcending above all,” said Rani DeMesme-Anders, Director of Community Engagement. “And with safety precautions in place against COVID-19, we look forward to watching this movie above Hollywood at a parking garage rooftop—it’s just like being at a drive-in theatre but, this time, with your community celebrating National Coming Out Day!”

Gates open at 5 p.m. with the screening scheduled at 6:30 p.m.

For the best vehicle positioning at the venue, guests can purchase the VIP Driver Ticket for $35 which allows one person (the driver) to park within the first two rows of vehicles. Passengers accompanying the VIP Driver are required to purchase individual VIP Passenger Tickets at $35 apiece.

For guests who prefer to sit under the stars—away from their vehicles—they may purchase VIP Socially Distanced Seats for Two which includes two (2) tickets to the movie; a pair of socially distanced premier seating reserved in front of the screen; a picnic package with snacks and wine for two; and one parking pass to park their vehicles on the lower level of the parking garage. These tickets holders will then walk to the rooftop.

All proceeds benefit the Center’s work to continue providing vital programs and services to those who need it the most during the COVID-19 pandemic.
