Tacoma Pride Film Series 2019 Rafiki still neon

June may have been Pride Month (and with good reason: this year we commemorated 50 years since the Stonewall riots, which began June 28, 1969), but here in Tacoma, we're just getting started! We're ecstatic to once again be part of Tacoma Pride programming, which begins July 9.

A Bread Factory: An Interview with Filmmaker Patrick Wang A Bread Factory still Tyne Daly Elisabeth Henry

Texas-born, Taiwanese American, supremely talented and overwhelmingly undersung. Filmmaker Patrick Wang has received endless praise by film-goers and critics alike, and though he’s been releasing films since 2011 to high praise, it’s likely his work has flown beneath your radar. 

The Grand Cinema is pleased to not only play Wang’s latest but also welcome him back to Tacoma next Tuesday, April 30. The film is called A Bread Factory, named for the bakery-turned-performance-space on which the film centers. Set in a small fictional upstate New York town, The Bread Factory is at threat of losing public funding due to newcomer performance artists.

The film is a love letter to community theater (and communities), and feels more than appropriate to play at Tacoma’s own local nonprofit art house cinema. In the following interview, Patrick and marketing manager Tanya talked this, his transition from theater to film, “talkable art,” and more!

For the Love of Pride and Film Viva Film

The Grand Cinema is a proud partner of Tacoma’s annual Pride festival, bringing the cinematic art of storytelling front and center. This year we are sharing LGBTQA stories of youth, creativity, and families - stories of discovery, identity, love, and expression.

Beyond the great content of our featured Pride films, we’re also inviting you to get inspired and to connect with our community through two very special events. Here’s what we’re doing for our 2016 Pride Film Series:
