Taking the film festival out of the movie theater, Dirty Looks: On Location is a free month-long queer screening series featuring a different movie in a new venue every day. For Independence Day, head to B Bar and Grill to see fireworks between Raquel Welch and Farrah Fawcett as they run away together in the critically panned Myra Breckinridge (Gore Vidal, who wrote the book that Michael Sarne’s 1970 X-rated movie is based on, called the film “an awful joke”). Other highlights include a screening of Andy Warhol’s Taylor Mead’s Ass at MOMA (July 8), Merce Cunningham’s Variations V on the High Line (July 25), and Rashaad Newsome’s Shade Compositions at the Stonewall (July 30). Myra Breckenridge tonight at 7.
