UPDATE: Due to ongoing lockdown restrictions, the release of Summer of Soul has been postponed. Ticketholders will be contacted and advised of the new release date ASAP.

Join us for this acclaimed and powerful documentary capturing the overlooked music festival that was the Harlem Cultural Festival. Directed by prominent American musician Questlove (from popular band The Roots), this inspiring film manages to both capture an important historical moment on film and feel potently relevant to today's world.

Summer of Soul (...Or, When the Revolution Could Not Be Televised) is playing for a limited time only, so don't miss your chance to see it in cinemas.

Summer of Soul

During the same summer as Woodstock, over 300,000 people attended the Harlem Cultural Festival, celebrating African American music and culture, and promoting Black pride and unity. The footage from the festival sat in a basement, unseen for over 50 years, keeping this incredible event in America’s history lost – until now.
