Annie Screens Tonight at IFC

Alex Bedder and Jonah Wolf
FILM: Annie at IFC Center
Annie, the belting, redhead orphan is having a moment. First, she's back on Broadway, and now she's getting her own place in the IFC Queer Art film series with a screening of the 1982 classic starring Carol Burnett, Albert Finney, Tim Curry and Bernadette Peters. How exactly is Annie a queer-themed film? Let actress and cabaret superstar Erin Markey explain how Annie's "musical orphan life" inspires and embodies the life of an outsider and a queered sense of success when she introduces the film tonight!
