Celebrating Black Cinema. Richard Roundtree stars as the ultra-cool private eye.

Celebrating Black Cinema
Thanks to funding from the BFI Film Audience Network, we were due to celebrate Black Cinema with a season of films in 2020 and then 2021, so we are glad to finally be able to do so. Celebrating milestones in black cinema, some classics and highlighting social issues. This season is a great opportunity to see these films through a modern lens on the big screen.
