Join us in celebrating the gay cult classics every month at our Big Gay Matinee, presented by CinemaQ! Complete your Sunday Funday - after you brunch and before you hit beer bust - as we look at what makes some films catnip for gay audiences. You don't have to be gay to enjoy these cinematic treats... BUT IT HELPS! Come early for pre-show entertainment, drink specials and more hosted by Keith Garcia and friends!

It's cookie time! Girl Scout Cookie Time, that is! Tis the season for those sweet little Samoas and tempting Thin Mints to make their yearly return an there's no better way to celebrate than with a screening of the most fabulous (and legally un-official) Girl Scout movie of all time: Troop Beverly Hills! Watch 80's star Shelley Long become a gay icon in one fell swoop and teach us all how to earn our badges in how to sassy comebacks and fashion fortitude!

With her marriage breaking up, Beverly Hills housewife Phyllis Nefler (Shelley Long) boosts her self-esteem by leading a local troop of Wilderness Girls. Although Phyllis' version of roughing it is spending the night at the Beverly Hills Hotel, that suits her privileged troop members just fine. Unfortunately, when Phyllis falls afoul of a rival leader, the girls are threatened with having their group dissolved -- unless they can prove their wilderness skills at the annual jamboree.
