Broadway bigwigs Philip J. Smith, Mike Nichols, Stephen Sondheim, and Scott Rudin hosted a screening of the new film Pride, directed by Tony winner Matthew Warchus, at the Ziegfeld Theater on September 15. The film, inspired by the creation of the Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners campaign during the 1984 U.K. miners' strike, stars stage and screen veterans Bill Nighy, Imelda Staunton, Dominic West, Andrew Scott, and Ben Schnetzer.
