A transporting documentary that's part music film, part historical record created around an epic event that stands as a testament to the healing power of music during times of unrest, both past and present.

In his acclaimed debut as a filmmaker, Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson presents a powerful documentary - created around an event that celebrated Black history, culture and fashion.

Over the course of six weeks in the summer of 1969, just one hundred miles south of Woodstock, The Harlem Cultural Festival was filmed in Mount Morris Park (now Marcus Garvey Park). The footage was largely forgotten–until now.

Summer of Soul shines a light on the importance of history to our spiritual well-being. The feature includes concert performances by Stevie Wonder, Nina Simone, Sly & the Family Stone, Gladys Knight & the Pips, Mahalia Jackson, B.B. King, The 5th Dimension and more.

This screening is on sale at reduced capacity with one seat left on either side of each booking. Find out more about your visit to us in the autumn
