Presented in conjunction with Out Fashion Photography, the Henry Art Gallery is offering up a screening of the 1973 flick Cleopatra Jones on Thursday, May 30.

The screening includes a discussion that is not limited to ideas about flair-leg slacks, platform boots, and fur. The gallery's take on the movie's relevancy: "The film reflexively deals with themes of feminism, sexuality, race, and pop culture during a transitional time in the 1970’s, a social climate that witnessed the rise of both second-wave feminism and the Black Power movement." 

Which is not to say that ideas about Tamara Dobson's wardrobe aren't worth bringing up. And certainly, you might let the movie's style direction inspire your own.

Tickets are on sale now.
