'Any Day Now' screens at Landmark in Gotham

“Please have your hankies ready,” Alan Cumming told the crowd Monday night before the screening of “Any Day Now” at Landmark Theater in Gotham. In the Music Box Films pic, Cumming plays a drag queen looking to earn custody of a 15-year-old boy with Down syndrome.

Later, at the Hotel Chantelle afterparty, Cumming said he was “blown away by the injustice” of this true story, scripted by George Arthur Bloom and the pic’s helmer, Travis Fine. “Prejudice still exists,” he added. “The thing about President Obama getting back in is that now he can fulfill his (promise). And you know he wants to. He’s just got to deal with all those crazy white men.”

Later in the evening, some of the ladies from the hotel’s weekly drag queen bingo came up to visit with the “Any Day Now” guys.

Fine said his go-to drag number would be “Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You” by Lauryn Hill, while Cumming chose “Listen” by Beyonce.

But, “I’m not a very good drag queen,” Cumming said. “I’m a terrible drag queen. I look like a horse.”
