To coincide with the national tour of Sunset Boulvard, SHOUT and the Birmingham Hippodrome present a free pre-show discussion exploring the queer significance of Sunset Boulevard with Jose Arroryo.

Unrequited love, love for sale, selling out, art, cinema, cinematic stardom – these are some of the themes of Sunset Boulevard.

How Billy Wilder’s film evokes, dramatises and conveys these themes and a comparison to how the musical does the same will be the subject of this talk. Jose Arroyo is Principal Teaching Fellow in Film Studies at the University of Warwick.
