CinéWilde presents “Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down!” (in 35mm)
Director: Pedro Almodóvar
1989, Spain, 101 Mins., 35mm, Dolby, NC-17
Spring fever is catching at CinéWilde and the only cure is gay Spanish director Pedro Almodovar’s 1990 dark comedy “Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down!”
When 23-year-old Ricky (played by a very young Antonio Banderas) gets released from a mental asylum, he seeks to win over an attractive film actress, with or without her consent. What unfolds is a candy-colored and controversial tale of bondage that can be interpreted literally or as a romantic parody.
Join us before the movie for a chat about Latinx representation in media, and stick around afterwards for Spanish-tunes and specialty cocktails in the lounge.
8:30pm – Pre-show chat
9pm – Movie
