Following the devastating news of Chadwick Boseman's passing, we have programmed a season of his work to celebrate his life and his incredible career. Tickets are £5 for Members and £8 for general admission.
We have partnered with the colon cancer charity 40tude, and £1 from every ticket will go towards supporting their invaluable work. Below you'll find more about 40tude and the season's upcoming films and screening dates.
40tude is an innovative and successful charity helping to tackle colon cancer. They do this in two ways:
Since 40tude was founded in September 2011 they have raised over £1.4 million to fund pioneering research at St. Mark's Hospital in Harrow, the national bowel hospital. The charity achieves results through innovative partnerships with a remarkable group of participants, sponsors, donors and medical specialists.
40tude raises funds and promotes awareness of colon cancer via a series of events and physical challenges. Their supporters also take part in a range of personal challenges and sponsored events on our behalf throughout the year.

This long-awaited Godfather of Soul biopic magnificently evokes James Brown's high-octane life, thanks to Chadwick Boseman's extraordinary performance as Brown and the no-holds-barred narrative from director Tate Taylor (The Help) and co-writer Jez Butterworth (Mojo). Beginning with Brown's impoverished childhood, the film then follows his relentlessly determined rise via gospel music to become a global soul legend. It also charts his sometimes tumultuous but steadfast friendship with long-time musical collaborator Bobby Byrd (Nelsan Ellis), who played the key supporting role in his success.
Brown's vanity and numerous other faults aren't shied away from, and neither is the ruthlessness of his manager (Dan Aykroyd). Produced by Mick Jagger, the film gives us a dynamic insight into Brown's roller-coaster life story and celebrates his musical legacy; the impressive depictions of his stage shows are electrifying.
