Event Description


The Bioscope is back! Please note we are now operating out of our new location at 44 Stanley. Please also note our COVID policy and procedures at the bottom of this info.


Narrated by Samuel L Jackson, and nominated for The Best Documentary Feature Academy Award in 2017. Bringing this powerful film back on to our big screen, is our way of helping play an active role in support of the ongoing Black Lives Matter movement.


Directed by: Raoul Peck. Documentary, 1h 33min


Told entirely in the words of James Baldwin, one of the greatest North-American writers of the second half of the twentieth century, through both personal appearances and the text of his final unfinished book project, I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO touches on the lives and assassinations of Malcolm X, Martin Luther King Jr., and Medgar Evers, to bring powerful clarity to how the image and reality of Blacks in America today is fabricated and enforced.


 


COVID POLICY AND PROCEDURE.


The new Bioscope location is set to be a 47 seater cinema. We are however only selling 23 seats in order for there to be space to sit apart from other members of the public. We ask you to please keep your mask on the entire time within the cinema premises. Drinks and snacks will be on sale and can be consumed during the film, but please consider those around you when your mask is off for this. 44 Stanley is largely an open air shopping centre, and The Bioscope has a great outside space directly outside the cinema that public can make use of. Within the cinema, we will also make use of temperature reading, air filtering, and constant cleaning to make sure that The Bioscope remains a safe and hygienic experience.


After purchasing tickets, if you experience any COVID related symptoms, or come into contact with anyone who has tested positive, we ask you to please not attend the screening. Please understand that The Bioscope will not be able to refund you this ticket. We are happy however for you to give your ticket to someone else that can attend. If this is not possible, we would be happy to exchange your ticket for a future screening. This can all be coordinated via email at [email protected]
