Beautiful Thing is a masterpiece in gay storytelling as well as a 90's romantic classic.

A sharply observed sense of family and community with astonishingly natural acting from some faces you'll recognise.

Recently named by the British Film Institute as one of the 30 best LGBT movies of all time and in celebration of Pride History month Streatham Projectors are delighted to screen this witty coming-of-age drama set in 90's South London.

A long hot summer on a housing estate in South London. Jamie is bunking off school, whilst his mother Sandra juggles job promotion and her relationship with hippy-dippy boyfriend Tony. Next door lives sassy Leah, who spends her day listing to Mama Cass records. In the same block, Jamie's class mate Ste, although sporty and popular at school, is bullied by his drunken father. One-day, Steve seeks refuge in Sandra's flat and ends up sleeping head to toe with Jamie....

This is a a portrayal of working-class LGBT characters with remarkable sensitivity and nuance. And a lot of laughs.
