Gay movie night @ Pathe de Munt remains successful.

One of the successful, but less known gay events in Amsterdam is the Gay movie night at Pathe de Munt – a large cinema just off Rembrandtplein square, and very close to the gay bars.
The Gay Movie night is every month, on the first Wednesday of the month.  (next gay film: Wednesday January 3, 2018)!
The cinema chooses a film with a gay theme.

Time for GayLinc to have a look!

On December 6, we went to see the movie Pushing Dead. The movie is about a HIV-positive gay writer, who gets into financial trouble because of a gift by his mother (see this page for more details).
This movie showed that you always should check the website of Pathe Gay Night, for two things:
1 – the starting time is usually 8.30pm, but this time the start was at 7.30pm. Starting times vary!
(how to find out? On the Pathe gay night page, click on the button ‘Amsterdam’ for more information).
2 – The movies are usually subtitled in Dutch, but not always – the movie we watched was English spoken without subtitles.

Taboo 52.366459, 4.891076 Taboo Taboo is a popular gay bar in the Reguliersdwarstraat, well it is one of the few left in this street. It is a tiny bar with an interior dominated with heavy reds, retro wallpaper and large tv screens. A typical steep staircase leads up to the first floor where the bathroom is. The friendly and professional staff make sure you\'ll have your drink quickly. Taboo attracts a mixed crowd of locals and tourists, making it a popular spot to meet-up with friends for a drink a search the crowd for new men in the city. Men of all ages feel welcome at this place. Special attraction in this crowd are the drag queens who start there evening out at Taboo and sometimes give an impromptu performance. When the weather is good, the street in front of Taboo wil fill with a huge crowd and mix with the visitors from the Soho bar across the street. This gives your night out the feel of a spontaneous street party. Address: Reguliersdwarsstraat 45 Open: Mo-Th 17:00-03:00; Fr-Su 16:04:00 Website: http://www.taboobar.nl

Drag show in Taboo Bar

We chose the Taboo Bar for our free drink, and were surprised how busy this was on a Wedenesday evening – the place was absolutely packed. This was probably also due to the drag queen show that was going on and the Happy Hour. So, everyone got two drinks for the price of one anyway, and our Gay Night tickets were quite useless! Well, who cares, it’s still a fun place to be, very good atmosphere, highly recommended.

The next movie is is shown on Wednesday January 3, 2018.
You can order tickets through the website, but  you can also simply purchase them in Pathe de Munt.
