We decided to take a break next week and so will not do a screening on the 1st of October. Screenings will continue on the 8th of October.
This Saturday the 24th of September at 19:34 we will be watching Pride, a historical comedy/drama movie about the UK miner’s strike in the 80s and the newly emerging lesbian and gay movement. Here’s how to get there.
Don’t forget that the cinema is outside, so bring something warm if you want to stay cosy. Bring your friends too! We may or may not have snacks and drinks so be prepared and bring something to share. Have you made a movie or video which you want to screen? Or do you have a recommendation or something to say to an audience? Drop us a line at: spaceinvadercinema aτ riseup doτ net
Here’s a description of the movie:
In 1984, a group of LGBT activists decide to raise money to support the National Union of Mineworkers during their lengthy strike against the Thatcher government. There is only one problem: the Union seems embarrassed to receive their support.
Set in an alternate socialist USA which, despite its peaceful Leftist revolution, has continued to fail working class women, people of color and sexual minorities, Born in Flames is a startlingly prescient documentary-style fiction film, depicting the labor of marginalized communities, and their organization and rebellion against oppressive forces.
In an alternate reality of present-day Oakland, California, telemarketer Cassius Green finds himself in a macabre universe after he discovers a magical key that leads to material glory. As Green’s career begins to take off, his friends and co-workers organize a protest against corporate oppression. Cassius soon falls under the spell of Steve Lift, a cocaine-snorting CEO who offers him a salary beyond his wildest dreams.
