This screening is in partnership with Billingtons Oldham who will be offering a bar complete with themed cocktails, classic American beers and plenty of delicious softies too. It's time to sit back, enjoy the film and kick off the most colourful month of the year! Billingtons are big supporters of the LGBTQ+ community and hold free, fully inclusive Pride Socials every last Thursday of the month - find Hannah on the night to find out more.

This event is open to all - whether you identify as LGBTQ+, an ally, or someone simply interested cinema.
