Documentary which takes the cut footage from 'When We Were Kings' to showcase the mammoth music festival that took place in the shadow of 'the rumble in the jungle', the legendary title fight between Mohammed Ali and George Foreman in Zaire in 1974. In the sweltering heat building before a storm, American soul legends including James Brown, B.B. King and Bill Withers shared the stage with African artists such as Miriam Makeba and Hugh Masekela. Promoter Don King saw the concert and fight as a celebration of black pride and nothing short of a spiritual homecoming. A stunningly photographed, soul-stirring celebration.
The watching-with-baby screenings are for parents/carers with young babies (up to 1 year) to enjoy a movie in the company of other parents and their offspring. We follow the weekly film program so you don't loose out on the
latest blockbusters, foreign language films and classic favourites. The Cube provides an area for prams, baby changing facilities, lowered movie volume and extra lighting in the auditorium.
There will always be a friendly Front of House on hand to help.
