CHICAGO – The Leather Archives & Museum (LA&M) announced today that it will hold a private screening of “Interior. Leather Bar.”, a James Franco and Travis Matthews Film, during International Mr. Leather Weekend 2013.  The screening will be exclusively for members of the Leather Archives & Museum and their guests.  The film will be shown at the Leather Archives & Museum following the conclusion of official IML events on Saturday, May 25th 2013.  Ticket information will be sent to members of the LA&M in early May.

“Interior. Leather Bar.”  has received high praise from critics since it premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival.  Filmmakers James Franco and Travis Mathews re-imagine the lost 40 minutes from “Cruising” as a starting point to a broader exploration of sexual and creative freedom.   LA&M Executive Director Rick Storer said “We are very excited to hold this private screening of ‘Interior. Leather Bar.’ at the Leather Archives.  The museum that holds so much of the art, culture and history of non-normative kinky sex provides a great environment to take in the film.”
