- A Quiet place part II (subtitled)
Join us on Wednesday 21 July at 8pm for a subtitled screening of A Quiet Place Part II for deaf or hard of hearing guests.
Following the deadly events at home, the Abbott family (Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds, Noah Jupe) must now face the terrors of the outside world as they continue their fight for survival in silence. Forced to venture into the unknown, they quickly realize that the creatures that hunt by sound are not the only threats that lurk beyond the sand path.
- Summer of Soul (…Or, why the revolution could not be televised)
This new documentary and winner at SUNDANCE Festival tells the story of The Harlem Cultural Festival which took place the same summer as the famed Woodstock festival. Over 300,000 people attended, yet it received virtually no coverage from the mainstream media. The 40 hours of never-seen-before footage has remained in storage for the past 50 years, keeping this incredible event in America's history lost - until now. It features many extraordinary performances by artists including Stevie Wonder, Sly and The Family Stone, Nina Simone, B.B. King, the Staple Singers, the 5th Dimension, David Ruffin, Mahalia Jackson, Ray Barretto and Gladys Knight and the Pips.
Why is this film so important? The festival was overshadowed by Woodstock, dismissed due to racist assumptions by broadcasters, and left sitting in a basement. Now, thanks to filmmaker Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson, it’s finally seeing the light of day.
- Two of Us
Nina and Madeleine, two retired women, are secretly deeply in love for decades. From everybody's point of view, including Madeleine's family, they are simply neighbours living on the top floor of their building. They come and go between their two apartments, sharing the tender delights of everyday life together. Until the day their relationship is turned upside down by an unexpected event leading Madeleine's daughter to slowly unveil the truth about them.
