Paris Is Burning and Wine Tasting at the ACME
Kick off your Pride 2019 weekend at the ACME with the classic documentary, Paris is Burning! In partnership with New Hope Celebrates!!
Join a wine and cheese tasting before the film at Wonderful World of Wines.
Paris is Burning offers a behind-the-scene glimpse at the golden age of New York Drag Balls where rival fashion houses come together to vogue and compete for bragging rights. Shot from 1985-89, it chronicles the ball culture of New York City and the Black, Latino, Gay and Transgender communities involved in it, in a time when the city was consumed by the ideals of wealth and glamour. In 2016, this film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant”.
