The Battelle Film Club’s fall season opener is Pride. One of the best films of 2014, Pride tells the funny and true story of leaders of London’s gay community going to bat for striking union workers. In 1984, the gay community found Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher’s treatment of minors to be exactly how they were treated.
An uneasy bond between the two groups is formed, at first, but it grows deeper over time.
This is a terrific film where you meet characters and situations that have you grinning from ear-to-ear from the opening scenes to the emotional climax. Don’t miss this one.
The fall 2016 series starts Sept. 9, with films shown every other Friday through Dec. 16.
Showtime is 7:30 p.m. at the Battelle Auditorium on the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory campus in Richland.
Cost is $4 for adults and $2 for kids. A series ticket is $16.
