The Birdcage Sashays Back into Cineplex Theatres Across Canada on June 15

Audiences are invited to celebrate Pride Month with The Birdcage

Beginning June 15, fans will have the opportunity to revisit the hilarious, progressive comedy The Birdcage on the big screen. First released in 1996 to box office success and positive critical reception, The Birdcage has been praised by GLAAD for going “beyond the stereotypes to see the characters’ depth and humanity.”

A remake of the classic French comedy La Cage aux Folles , The Birdcage stars Robin Williams as Armand Goldman, the owner of a popular drag nightclub and Nathan Lane as Albert Goldman, Armand’s long-time partner and the club’s star. When the couple’s son Val returns from college to announce his engagement to the daughter of a conservative US Senator (Gene Hackman), Armand and Albert decide to hide who they are and dress Albert as Val’s “mother” in order to appease their future in-laws. Comedic chaos ensues as the couple and their houseman Agador (Hank Azaria) invent new characters for themselves in order to maintain the charade.
