The GW Documentary Center at George Washington University will host a screening of “The Times of Harvey Milk” (1984) on Thursday, Dec. 8 at 7 p.m. as part of its “What’s Up? Docs!,” a new film series that pairs landmark documentaries with scholars, critics and film directors.

Harvey Milk, who was assassinated, was the first openly gay person elected to public office in San Francisco when he won a seat on the city’s board of supervisors in 1978. The film will be shown on the third floor of the Marvin Center Amphitheater (800 21st St., N.W.). Harry Benshoff, author of “Queer Cinema: the Film Reader” will conduct at post-screening Q&A session.

Tickets for the full series are $50 ($30 for GW students) or $15 for this film alone ($10 for GW students). Visit for more information and tickets.
