Hearts for Charity--Albuquerque’s own Crone Productions will be screening a special presentation of the romantic drama Desert Hearts at the Guild Cinema in Nob Hill on Sunday, March 4. Desert Hearts, starring Helen Shaver, Patricia Charbonneau and Denise Crosby, made its debut in 1985 and remains the classic lesbian film against which all others are measured. A portion of the proceeds from this screening will be donated to charity in the names of Nancy Parker Davidson and Linda Gilkey, the victims of a tragic double homicide on Jan. 3. Screenings will take place at noon and 2 p.m. Ticket price is $7 per person.
