(Lambertville, NJ) – Join the Acme Screening Room on May 20 and 21 for two very special events. On May 20, at 6pm, May Pang will hold a Q&A after a screening of “The Lost Weekend: A Love Story”. In the film, May Pang takes us on a deeply emotional journey through her 18 month relationship with John Lennon that would shape her life and reinvigorate one of the greatest figures in music. Featuring interviews with famed rocker Alice Cooper, Apple Records manager Tony King, and legendary drummer Jim Keltner, and leading to a surprising and emotional ending, The Lost Weekend is a funny, touching and vibrant portrait of first love, produced and directed by Eve Brandstein, Richard Kaufman and Stuart Samuels.

In honor of Pride Weekend on Sunday May 21 at 3pm, we will screen the documentary “Queerying Nature”. Partly filmed in Lambertville, NJ and featuring local artist Gwenn Seemel, join us for a post screening QnA with Gwenn. In the animal world, sexuality and gender are diverse. In other words: being queer is natural. There are thousands of cases of homosexual birds, transgender fish, non-binary animals, polyamorous families… So what happened? Has our outlook changed? “Queerying Nature” intertwines the words of Vinciane Despret, philosopher, Camille Pier and Gwen Seemel, artists, and biologists and ethologists to explode the idea of a sexual or gender norm. Nature is much more queer than us.
