December 9, 2018 @ 3:30 pm - 5:15 pm

Free – £8

Owned by women, underground and illegal in nature, the club Shakedown was an independent, all black lesbian strip club operating in LA from the late 90s. Director Leilah Weinraub’s film chronicles the explicit performances and personal relationships of the party’s dancers and organisers, including Ronnie-Ron, Shakedown Productions’ creator and emcee; Mahogany, the legendary “mother” of the community; Egypt, their star performer; and Jazmine, the “Queen” of Shakedown. 

Presented in partnership with Scottish Documentary Institute.

All ticket holders can join us at Saramago at CCA after the screening for free drinks supported by Sheffield Doc/Fest.


Tickets are priced on a sliding scale £0-£8 depending on what you can afford. To book, please use the button below or call GFT box office on +44 (0)141 332 6535.

Film is in the English language with English language subtitles/captions. Hearing loop available (GFT’s Cinema 3 and box office).

Film is very visual-based, so less suitable for blind and partially sighted audiences. Large print versions of handouts available.

Glasgow Film Theatre has good access for wheelchair users. Click here for more details on venue access.

We have a limited travel fund to assist people to come to the Festival for those who could not otherwise afford to attend. If you would like to apply for this, please contact [email protected].


In order to make SQIFF more accessible to those on a low income, we use a sliding scale ticket price of £0-£8 for our events. You can choose what you pay based on your circumstances – you won’t be asked for any proof / ID, we just ask that you are honest! Our ticket sales go towards supporting the vital work of LGBTQ+ filmmakers, artists and organisers. If you have a free ticket and can no longer use it, please contact the relevant venue box office to let them know so it can be used by someone else.
