Saturday 28th Sept
Stow Film Lounge @ X7eaven Performing Arts Academy, Nexus Centre, 3 Snowberry Close, Leytonstone E15 2AH at 7.30pm (Doors)

We are delighted to be working with The Barbican and the X7eaven Performing Arts Academy for the Leytonstone Loves Film extravaganza weekend, part of the Waltham Forest Borough of Culture celebrations. Our programme will be themed around films made on the street, jam-packed with short entertainments, family-friendly feature films and movies related to dance, as well as our own celebrated children’s feature film made in the Borough.

To end the day, there will be a special evening screening of this recent classic followed by a post-film DJ for the over 18s to let loose and party.

From visionary filmmaker Spike Lee comes the incredible true story of an American hero. It’s the early 1970s, and Ron Stallworth is the first African-American detective to serve in the Colorado Springs Police Department. Determined to make a name for himself, Stallworth bravely sets out on a dangerous mission: infiltrate and expose the Ku Klux Klan.

The young detective soon recruits a more seasoned colleague, Flip Zimmerman, into the undercover investigation of a lifetime. Together, they team up to take down the extremist hate group as the organization aims to sanitize its violent rhetoric to appeal to the mainstream. Produced by the team behind the Academy-Award winning Get Out.

Street food stalls and cinematic treats like popcorn, hotdogs/veggiedogs, ice-creams, drinks and nibbles will be available, as well as a licensed bar.

7.30pm, Film 8.00pm, Close 12.00am
