MIX UP THEATRE TOP 10 MOVIES FOR PRIDE




Makoto Shinkai's Your Name is far more than a body-swapping romance, it's a hopeful tale for transgender viewers.


Stewart - ★★★★★

"A beautiful animated film following the strangely interlinked lives of two teenagers. The characters are fully rounded, likeable and the audience fully invests in their story. The story is part body swap comedy and part intense end of the world drama. The visuals are absolutely stunning, what a gorgeous film to be swept away into including those beautiful shots of the sky. See this one now if you haven't already - and if you have, watch it again."


 

2. THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW (1975)

Streaming - Disney+


The eccentric film The Rocky Horror Picture Show has been a staple in the LGBTQ community since its initial release in the 1970s.

 

3. CLOSE (2022)

Streaming - BBC iPlayer


Close is a powerful film about queer youth.

 

4. BILLY ELLIOT - THE MUSICAL LIVE (2014)



 

Streaming - Disney+


Mylo (Age 13) - ★★★★★

"JoJo Rabbit was a brilliant film, it contrasted the joys of a child's imagination with the brutal world that Germany was at that time. It was filmed from the child's perspective, exaggerating the contrast and giving a sense of playfulness. The film had meaningful moments, moments of great sadness and happy moments that brought it all together. The emotions brought on by these moments were shown through great use of filming techniques and engaging dialogue. Altogether, it is a film which is interesting and enjoyable whilst making you think and appreciate the hardship that many Germans suffered."

 

Streaming - Disney+


Lightyear's features the first queer Pixar character shown kissing her wife on screen.


Sandy (Age 9) - ★★★★★

"Ok, let me get this straight; LIGHTYEAR WAS AMAZING (not boring). My favourite character was Sox, Buzz’s personal companion robot (he is a cat). Lightyear was about Buzz Lightyear and his crew crash land on a newplanet. Buzz tries to get hyperspeed, but something happened (you will have to find out in the movie). Also there is a post credit scene, but you will have to see it to find out what it is."

The biopic about the band Queen, Bohemian Rhapsody, became the highest grossing LGBTQ movie ever made.

"A brilliant fantasy adventure with themes of LGBTQ+ representation at its core. The animation is stunning, the jokes hilarious, vocal performances from Moretz and Ahmed spot on! Wonderful characters, love it, watch it!"
