Event has passed
ROCKLAND — The Strand Theatre’s 2023 film series “100 Years of Movies” presents the film Orlando (1992) on Sunday, June 18, at 2 p.m. The theme for June’s films is “Pride Month.”
Tilda Swinton, Billy Zane and Quentin Crisp star in this "hip, sexy and wickedly funny" film based on the gender-bending novel by Virginia Woolf. Swinton stars as Orlando, an English nobleman who defies the law of nature with surprising results. Immortal and highly imaginative, he undergoes a series of extraordinary transformations which humorously and hauntingly illustrate the eternal war between the sexes.
“Visually stunning and beautifully acted, Orlando is an intoxicating blend of romance, adventure and illusion,” said the Strand, in a news release.
“100 Years of Movies” is part of the Strand Theatre’s yearlong celebration of its 100th anniversary in 2023. Films from every decade the theater has been in operation will be screened, presented with monthly themes. The films were selected to represent the filmmaking style and perspectives of their time; in addition to well-known works, the titles will include lesser-known, high quality releases that have been overlooked as well as films from underrepresented directors. The films were curated by Alicia Malone, a host on Turner Classic Movies (TCM), and Strand House Manager Liz McLeod. Each film will be introduced by Malone or McLeod, or a special guest presenter.
This film is rated PG-13. Tickets are $8/General Admission, $7/Strand Members, and will be available at the box office 30 minutes prior to show time.
