Presented in partnership with Dare to Diva. Join us before the film from 6pm where Radio2Funky's DJ KMS will be setting the atmosphere, plus there'll be themed drinks, African-American soul food specials and patties. Our kitchen will be open until 10pm this evening.

A celebration of Black history, culture and fashion, the directorial debut of musician Questlove won the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance Film Festival and focuses on the 1969 Harlem Culture Festival.

Comprised of over 40 hours of archive footage that was left untouched in a basement for almost 50 years, the film features never-before-seen performances by Stevie Wonder, Nina Simone, Gladys Knight & the Pips and many more.

A profound, raucus and hugely enjoyable look into an incredible event that was almost forgotten.

For those looking for a quick bite before the screening we are offering a Film Ticket + Patty offer. Select this combo ticket option and you will be asked for your choice of patty at the checkout.
