The national press dubbed them ‘The Black Beatles’, the other musical quartet from Liverpool who became the UK’s most enduring soul and funk act ever – The Real Thing. The group dominated the international charts throughout the 1970s and 1980s with iconic songs like You to Me Are Everything and Can You Feel the Force, but the band’s meteoric success was also tempered with personal tragedy. Narrated by Jacob Anderson (Game of Thrones), Simon Sheridan’s fascinating new documentary charts the story of Britain’s first black music revolution.

That’ll Be The Day
The film will be followed by a Q&A session with the films producer Lord David Puttnam (Chariots Of Fire, The Mision, The Killing Fields) and writer Ray Connolly hosted by Travis Elborough.
That’ll Be The Day is a classic of early ‘70s British cinema and the film that launched David Essex’s acting career. Set in late '50s, early ‘60s Britain it tells the tale of a suburban school dropout Jim Maclaine (Essex) as he drifts through a succession of dead-end jobs until he finds an outlet for his frustration in rock'n'roll. Before long Maclaine is on the path to stardom, a theme continued in the film's equally compelling sequel Stardust.
Written by journalist/novelist Ray Connolly That’ll Be The Day captures the atmosphere and excitement of the early UK music scene via some outstanding performances by Ringo Starr, Keith Moon, Rosemary Leach, Billy Fury and Essex himself. The movie's authentic period costumes, meanwhile, were supplied by Vivienne Westwood and Malcolm Mclaren from their King’s Road boutique Let It Rock.
