Free COVID and Monkeypox vaccinations will be available outside of the theater from noon to 4:00 p.m. on the same day.

A short panel discussion will accompany the screening led by Los Angeles Community College District Board member David Vela, the first openly gay Trustee on the nation’s largest community college district board and the film makers.
“LA: A Queer History” is a documentary by Gregorio Davila that looks at how Los Angeles became the forefront of the LGBTQ+ civil rights movement as activists share their groundbreaking stories of resistance in one-on-one interviews and rare archival footage.

People are asked to bring a photo ID and their vaccination cards if they have them. Anyone who has insurance is asked to bring their insurance card, however, insurance is not required to receive a vaccination.
