You’ve all seen the late, great Robin Williams and Only Murders in the Building star Nathan Lane as a gay couple attempting to play it straight to impress the conservative family of their son’s fiancée in the 1996 classic The Birdcage. But have you seen the Saint-Tropez-set, French-language original? Adapted by director Édouard Molinaro from Jean Poiret’s play of the same name, he casts Cesar-winner Michel Serrault in the role of Zaza the drag star and Italian actor Michel Galabru as his slightly butcher partner Renato, who owns a cabaret club. What could possibly go wrong when Zaza decides it would be easier to pass as Renato’s wife? Quite a lot, as it turns out, in a gloriously goofy romp that was not only a huge hit at home, but also scooped a Golden Globe and three Oscar noms.

The Rooftop Cinema will host you with a fabulous bar and sausage sizzle (with vegan options) from 7:00pm. Screenings commencing at sundown (approximately 8:30pm). Enjoy a fine selection of cheese, crackers and goodies supplied by The Little Social – available for pre-purchase below, ready for collection when you arrive!

Rooftop Cinema is an outdoor event with picnic-style seating – attendees are encouraged to bring rugs and blankets.

Food and drinks will be available from the Rooftop Cinema bar. No external food or alcohol is permitted.

Please see MQFF’s ticketing T&C’s for full details.
