Friday13th April PRIDE (cert 15, 115mins)

A very funny and true story which is part of social history based on an allegiance which developed between striking Welsh miners and a group of gay activists. In 1984 at the Gay Pride March in London, a group of gay and lesbian marchers decide to raise money to support the families of the striking miners. And so begins the extraordinary story of two seemingly alien communities who form a surprising and ultimately triumphant partnership, despite some prejudice on both sides. With Bill Nighy, Imelda Staunton, Dominic West and Paddy Considine. The updates at the end about the main players is inspirational. Doors open 7.30 for 8pm and the bar will be open for refreshments before and after the film. Guest tickets available at £5-00 per film for adults and £3 for kids. Contact Carole Perks on 01298 871 451 to book guest tickets in advance and as ever, there’s a warm welcome for old and new members and guests.
