Dog-Friendly Screening: If Beale Street Could Talk
Starring: Regina King, Stephen James, KiKi Layne
Duration: 119 min
We are happy for you to bring your dog along to this special dog-friendly screening (you're welcome without a dog too). Before the screening there are a few things to consider:
If you attend this screening with a dog, you'll be issued with a fleece blanket to cover the seat used by the dog or to use as a rug if the dog sits on the floor. During the screenings, we will provide bowls of water around the screen. We will leave lighting levels a little higher than usual during the screening and lower the volume of the soundtrack.
Please be aware that we reduce capacity when offering ‘dog-friendly’ screenings, so there may be fewer tickets than usual. We limit dogs to: one dog to one adult. For further information, see dog-friendly screening policy in our cinema.
Adapted from James Baldwin’s powerful novel by Moonlight director Barry Jenkins, If Beale Street Could Talk is a lyrical celebration of love, both familial and romantic, told through the prism of a young African-American couple’s struggle for justice in 1970s Harlem. At the centre of the story is Tish, a newly engaged woman who races against the clock to prove her lover’s innocence while carrying their first-born child to term.
Jenkins’ elegant third feature sings with soulful performances from a largely unknown cast, and paints a wonderful portrait of New York against a backdrop of social change and injustice. It’s a dreamy, sometimes heartbreaking tale of love against impossible odds, and a timely reminder that compassion can be a force of nature.
