Film with a bit of Pride to be screened at Federal

MARGARET Thatcher was loved and loathed in almost equal measure.

And plenty of films have been based during her reign as British Prime Minister.

Pride is set in the summer of 1984, when Thatcher was in power and the mine workers strike was in full swing.

The film documents a London-based group of gay and lesbian activists as they set out to raise money to support the striking workers and their families.

It's been screened on Saturday at Federal Hall.

Doors open at 6.30pm for dinner and the film starts at 8pm.

The dinner menu includes roasted herbed chicken or potato and leek pie served with a selection of salads. There's also yummy cakes tea and coffee.

Phone 66849313 or email federalfilmsociety@gmail.com or look up the group's website of Facebook page.
