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.
Followed by a short gig by The Real Thing, live on stage at the Regent Street Cinema on October 24th only.

Part of INK ON SCREEN – The Mayfair & St James Literary Festival Cinema Strand – exploring the power of words on screen
Introduced by Tobias Menzies, produced by Asterisk Films and Justine Waddell.
Loosely based on the cult novel by Michael Faber, Jonathan Glazer’s 2013 film starring Scarlett Johansson, is a startling dystopian fable about an alien woman who drives around Scotland picking up random men who she drugs and delivers to her home planet. A dark and satirical meditation on factory farming, nature, and what it is to be a merciful human being, the film also boasts breathtaking cinematography from Daniel Landin and a remarkable score from Mica Levi.
