FORTHCOMING ATTRACTIONS FOR 2015
No film in January because Loddon Players have their pantomime but here are some dates to put in your diary. Watch this space for more details:
Not many films get an audience appreciation score of 94% on Rotten Tomatoes but this fact-based comedy of opposites delighted both critics and audiences.
Set in the summer of 1984 – Margaret Thatcher is in power and the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) is on strike. At the Gay Pride March in London, a group of gay and lesbian activists decides to raise money to support the families of the striking miners. But there is a problem. The Union seems embarrassed to receive their support. The activists are not deterred and they decide to ignore the Union and go direct to the miners. They identify a mining village in deepest Wales and set off in a mini bus to make their donation in person. And so begins the extraordinary story of two seemingly alien communities who form a surprising and ultimately triumphant partnership. A faith-restoring, heart-warming tale with plenty of humour based on real events and characters.
