Taxi Zum Klo (35mm)
Dir. Frank Ripploh (1981); West Germany, 98m
Starring: Frank Ripploh, Bernd Broaderup, Orpha Termin
German with English subtitles
Programmed by: Zeami Eccles-Irwin

Taxi Zum Klo is a comedy of manners that tells the story of Frank Ripploh, a Berlin school teacher with a very active sex life. Frank tries to keep his professional and private life separate, but when he begins a new relationship his love of hookups places his teaching career and his romantic life at stake. Taxi Zum Klo was considered groundbreaking at the time for its frank depiction of homosexuality and is today celebrated for its in-depth look at early 80s gay culture in West Germany. A semi-autobiographical work written, directed, and starring Frank Ripploh, Taxi Zum Klo humorously portrays the contradictions of closeted life in a film that well deserves its legendary cult status.

About 5th Avenue Cinema

Our goals are to provide further education for PSU students interested in film, as well as a fun place for people to see something they wouldn’t ordinarily get to see on the big screen.

Our feature films are presented on 35mm film, with the occasional screening on our rare Norelco 16mm projector.
