Correction: the screening of Pride is Wednesday, Oct. 1 at 7 p.m. at Cinemark Valley View. We apologize for the error.
Pride is inspired by an extraordinary true story. It’s the summer of 1984, Margaret Thatcher is in power and the National Union of Mineworkers is on strike, prompting a London-based group of gay and lesbian activists to raise money to support the strikers’ families. Initially rebuffed by the Union, the group identifies a tiny mining village in Wales and sets off to make their donation in person. As the strike drags on, the two groups discover that standing together makes for the strongest union of all. The cast includes Bill Nighy, Ben Schnetzer, Dominic West, Andrew Scott, Imelda Staunton, George MacKay, Joseph Gilgun, Paddy Considine and Jessica Cave. Pride has a Rotten Tomatoes score of 97% positive reviews.
