Filler Cheap Thrills

SEXY CINEMA: The Screening Room, 127 E. Congress St., combines two series, Sex in the Cinema and Cinema Detour, to present this weekend's featured screenings of Nitrate Kisses and Mickey One. The former, directed by pioneer of lesbian cinema Barbara Hammer, weaves archival footage from Lot In Sodom (1933, the premiere American gay film), footage from German films of the 1930s and current images of desire. Mickey One is an off-beat, Kafkaesque film featuring a frenetic performance by Warren Beatty, as a night club comic on the run from the mob. Tickets are $4, $3 for matinees. Call 622-2262 for show times.
