Liverpool Pride at the Pictures

Pride At The Pictures is Liverpool Pride’s film programme and is proudly supported by UNISON North West LGBT and Picturehouse@FACT. We hold monthly film nights all year round and a short summer season of films every year. For 2018, our focus is on films from around the world, with features, documentaries and shorts.

We are a proud partner of the IRIS Festival, the largest LGBT short film festival in Europe and have nominated a film for their Best Of British competition for the last two years: Crossroad from Director Leon Lopez in 2016, and Fey Presto: Queen of Close Up from Hanna Aqvilin in 2017.

Our films are chosen by a group of volunteers and aim to present a diverse view of all aspects of LGBT+ lives. We are committed to showing new films that would not otherwise receive cinema screenings other than festivals as well as great films from the past and the occasional camp classic!

We’re all about seeing films in a cinema setting and having the chance for debate, about queering public spaces and about creating a sense of community.

If you would like to know more about the programme and how to get involved, contact us via Facebook:



Thanks, from everyone at Pride@thePictures.

The Ice King 

Monday 26 March: 6.30pm

Directed by: James Erskine: 2018: Cert 12

With the Winter Olympics and Para Olympics still fresh in our minds, its fascinating to think that John Curry was an out gay Olympian competing only a few years after the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality. This new film explores his origins and what happened after his Olympic career as well as his athletic and artistic glory days.

Until he lit up the Games with his daring approach, figure skating was seen as dated and a niche interest, something his father only allowed him to do because it was classed as a sport and he didn’t see it as “sissy” like ballet.

This fair account of his life doesn’t shy away from his darker side, and is fascinating.

120 Beats Per Minute

Monday 30 April: 6pm

Directed by: Robin Campillo: 2017: cert: 15

120 Beats Per Minute has received rave reviews around the world for its passionate portrayal of the 1990’s French battle against HIV and government apathy. It’s also a powerful love story, as Nathan, new to Paris and the campaign falls heavily in love with radical Sean.

It takes an honest look at what campaigning means, the prices people pay for speaking out but also the exhilaration of being part of something that values every life and fights for justice and fairness.

The film is an epic at 2 hours and 23 minutes, but every minute is worth a watch.
