Sidewalk returns with its legendary Kiss ‘Em or Diss ‘Em Valentine’s Spectacular!

Spread over three days, this Valentine + Anti-Valentine event has something for everyone.


On Saturday, Feb. 12th we’re kicking things off Diss ‘Em title MAD MAX FURY ROAD (2015) at 7:00 pm and Kiss ‘Em title HAROLD & MAUDE (1971) at 7:15 pm.

Later in the evening, we’re hosting Valentine’s Gay with titles BOUND (1996) at 10:00 pm and BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN (2005) at 10:15 pm.


Sunday, Feb. 13th we have earlier showtimes with MAD MAX FURY ROAD (2015) at 5:00 pm and Kiss ‘Em title HAROLD & MAUDE (1971) at 5:15 pm. Then later with Valentine’s Gay titles BOUND (1996) at 8:00 pm and BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN (2005) at 8:15 pm.


Valentine’s Day proper this year falls on the opening day of Sidewalk’s Black Lens Film Week – a week that shines a light on some of the most outstanding and longstanding narrative and documentary films by above-the-line black filmmakers. So join us this Valentine’s Day for Kiss ‘Em or Diss ‘Em: Black Love edition with LOVE JONES (1997) at 7:00 pm and DIARY OF A MAD, BLACK WOMAN (2005) at 7:15 pm.


Sidewalk is always looking for the perfect excuse to throw a party and the overlap of Valentine’s and Black Lens week means we’re really going to be pulling out all the red and pink stops – all 3 days include astrology readings, hand-crafted jewelry (including forever bracelets by Lisa Ayers from Mythic Metal), photo ops, festive drink specials and more – as you know, we think film is best when it’s experiential. So, rest up, mask up and prepare to be Sidewalk valentined.


Tickets are $30 per person and include one ticket to the film of your choice, one drink ticket redeemable for a glass of Korbel Champagne (if you’re 21+, a large soda of choice if not), one small popcorn, and a super special sidewalk surprise.
