So Yong Kim directs the story of two friends, Sarah and Mindy (Riley Keough and Jena Malone), who take a road trip together mostly because Sarah is tired of being ignored by her husband.

Several years later, Sarah goes after Mindy and attempts to rekindle the feelings they shared on the ill-fated trip, but arrives shortly before Mindy's own wedding. William Friedkin's 1970 film version of Matt Crowley's seminal play, The Boys in the Band, screens at 9 p.m. ($10 to $13). Michael hosts a birthday party for his pal Harold and their small circle of friends -- all of whom are gay and out. When Michael's college roommate Alan unexpectedly shows up, his thinly veiled revulsion for homosexuality leads to spats, fights and a cruel game designed to humiliate everyone that plays it.
