Join Welcome Cinema + Kitchen for our 1st year anniversary as we celebrate Black History Month with a screening of HIDDEN FIGURES.

Hidden Figures is the true story of a team of female African-American mathematicians who served a vital role in NASA during the early years of the U.S space program.

“Empowerment cinema at its most populist, and one only wishes that the film had existed at the time it depicts.” Variety

Sit down to our legendary supper club prepared by Welcome Kitchen. Guests are treated to a variety of cuisines as chefs invite us to taste foods of their homeland from Africa to Asia. Look out for menu announcements closer to the time.

After a short panel discussion with the BFI’s Matima Kabalika and special guests the evening will close with live music from the fabulous Dansu. Let your hair down and have a birthday dance with us! It’s going to be a night to remember.

Doors open at 6pm. Movie starts at 6.15. Dinner from 8.30. In conversation Matimba Kabalika (BFI) and special guests, 9pm. Music til late…
