A time for celebration and reflection, Black History Month is one of the most significant moments of the year. To mark it, we bring you a special programme of film that showcases standout Black talent, from the writers and directors to leading stars.

Through this series, we consider the power of film in portraying Black narratives and spotlight films that have captured and impacted Black culture throughout the decades.

We’ve also programmed a spooky selection from Nia DaCosta and Jordan Peele (Us, Get Out, Nope) to help kick-start your Halloween festivities!

From 10 October, join us every Monday to discover the BHM series. Screenings will operate on a pay-what-you-can basis starting from £3.
