William Friedkin / 1980 / 102 minutes / Rated R

One of the most notorious films of the 1980s, this controversial crime noir thriller directed by William Friedkin (The Exorcist, The French Connection) stars Al Pacino as Steve Burns, an NYPD officer who goes undercover in Manhattan’s Leather-bar underground in order to track down a serial killer targeting gay men. But as Stevebecomes immersed in club hopping, he begins to identify with the subculture more than he expected. Meanwhile, the police force’s homophobia becomes apparent and the killer remains at large.

The Crosstown Arts Film Series showcases a diverse collection of independent, international, historically significant, artistic, experimental, cult, underground, and documentary features.
