Based on true story, “Pride” tells the story of a group of young, gay men and women from London, who come together to provide support to families affected by the National Union of Mineworkers’ strike in 1984. The group struggles to find people to accept their donations because of who they are. They end up in a tiny town where they experience many life changing events, not just for the people in the group, but for the town itself. Some notable actors featured in this film are Bill Nighy, Imelda Staunton, Dominic West, and Andrew Scott. The movie will be screening Nov. 22-24, showtimes are available on the Olympia Film Society website.
