Put Some Gay In Your Day, Dallas!

Got The Need For Speed?

If someone were to ask us to name the top 100 LGBTQ films—heck, the top 1,000—we’d never even consider Speed Racer.

Yet that’s why we love CinéWilde so much. They open our eyes to so many things!

This Friday, for the first screening of 2023, CinéWilde presents the 2008 movie starring Emile Hirsch as the titular character. Because it’s directed by out transgender siblings Lilly Wachowski and Lana Wachowski, it automatically falls into the queer film category.

And we’re here for it!

Or should we say, we’ll be there for it at The Texas Theatre.

CinéWilde was awarded an Arts Activate grant from the City of Dallas’ Office of Arts and Culture, which helps keep programming like this available. So make sure to attend!

To celebrate the visual artistry behind Speed Racer, the CinéWilde team will be interviewing a local LGBTQ artist as part of a pre-show Q&A. That’ll be followed by arts and crafts when the last end credit rolls.

Go, Speed Racer, go!
