Celebrate the 30th anniversary of Gus Van Sant’s My Own Private Idaho, laugh with the exceptionally funny remake of the classic French farce The Birdcage and be inspired by the comedic true story PRIDE.

A long running cinema, Cinema Nova hosts Pride On Screen during Pride Month every year. Celebrated annually in June, the month that the seminal Stonewall riots took place, Pride Month is a celebration of LGBTQIA+ resilience and uplifting queer voices.

Pride On Screen runs between Friday June 10 and Wednesday June 15 with different films showing at various times on those days.
