Summer of Soul: film screening

Everyone is talking about Summer of Soul since it swept up thirty-five awards, twenty-five of which were for best documentary! So, needless to say we’re incredibly excited to be screening this acclaimed film at the Hall. 

This part documentary, part music film will transport you back to 1969, taking you to the Harlem Cultural Festival.

There’s no doubt you’ll be dancing in your seats and singing along as you watch captivating performances by musical legends such as Stevie Wonder, Nina Simone, Sly & the Family Stone, Gladys Knight & the Pips, Ray Baretto, Abbey Lincoln & Max Roach and the list goes on. 

We’ll keep those good vibes going after the film with a soundtrack session, so you can grab another glass of wine and get up on your feet for a boogie as we listen to all the incredible songs from the film.

The bar will be open serving wine, beer, prosecco, soft drinks, and popcorn. All bar proceeds will go towards the running and restoration of Stretford Public Hall.

Doors & bar will be open from 7:00 pm, with screening starting at 7:30 pm.

The standard ticket price is £6 but there are also concessions available and a small number of free tickets. If you can afford to, you can also ‘pay it forward’ and give someone else the chance to attend.
