Eighteen programs are on tap for Outfest’s fourth day. The annual gay and lesbian film festival is keeping movie-lovers busy catching up with the latest offering, some dashing back and forth from one theatre to the next to catch screening.
Today’s programs are being held at three different venues:
- Directors Guild of America (DGA) theatre (7920 Sunset Blvd. at Fairfax Avenue)
- Harmony Gold theater (7655 Sunset Blvd. at Stanley Avenue)
- REDCAT (Roy and Edna Disney/CalArts Theatre) at the Disney Concert Hall (631 W. 2nd Street) in downtown Los Angeles.
Same day tickets can be purchased at the venue box office one hour prior to screening time. Advance tickets for screenings happening later in the festival can be purchased in the DGA lobby.
