Special Screening of Dallas Buyers Club

  • Nickelodeon

We have two things happening this month on two different nights for your enjoyment. First, a night at the movies on Thursday, the 21st, then Fab Friday on the 29th.

Santa Cruz Gay Men, who bring you Fab Fridays and the Santa Cruz AIDS Project are co-sponsoring a special screening of Dallas Buyers Club at the Nickelodeon on Thursday, November 21st at 8PM. The people at the Nick are reaching out to our community of gay men and all those affected by AIDS by making the price for this one showing of Dallas Buyers Club only $7.50 per person.
We'll be going out to socialize at a bar downtown afterward. Come out and join us!

Here’s a synopsis & a link to the trailer:
Matthew McConaughey stars in DALLAS BUYERS CLUB as real-life Texas cowboy Ron Woodroof, whose free-wheeling life was overturned in 1985 when he was diagnosed as HIV-positive and given 30 days to live. These were the early days of the AIDS epidemic, and the U.S. was divided over how to combat the virus. Ron, now shunned and ostracized by many of his old friends, and bereft of government-approved effective medicines, decided to take matters in his own hands, tracking down alternative treatments from all over the world by means both legal and illegal. Bypassing the establishment, the entrepreneurial Woodroof joined forces with an unlikely band of renegades and outcasts - who he once would have shunned - and established a hugely successful "buyers' club." Their shared struggle for dignity and acceptance is a uniquely American story of the trans-formative power of resilience.
