    Arrived with my +2, 15 mins early but unfortunately it wasn't early enough to get seats so we reluctantly resorted to plan b (local cinema). However, the crowd and vibe at Mella seemed really good. Will try to link up again sometime in the future.

    Lively, full and exciting crowd, enjoyable film and innovative environment. Plenty of views shared and networking. That's what it's all about.

    Hi Jide, A big thank you to you and your team for putting together a night full of positive vibes. Seating in the scheme of things is a small issue that can easily be sorted. For me it felt great to see so many of our people together sharing an experience.

    Not a 5* only due to the fact that I & my friend were not in a particularly good seat. Otherwise, love it!!! Great atmosphere, convivial.

    Hi Jide, I just want to say thank you to you and your team for a really good night last night. And also for making me feel welcome. Looking forward to coming again.

    A group of ladies couldn't get enough of the movie(mainly because of Andre' 3000) but they enjoyed the fact that for once they felt there was an organisation catering for viewing great films totally included people of African descent.
    Whilst it was a packed house, for some people(late comers) the house was too packed. This was due to their limited viewing experience. Panic not!!! We're advising the venue on what they can possibly do to optimise the seating layout. In the meantime we advise BCC members don't get there missing out on a good seat, aka arrive with time to choose your seating.

    Firstly on behalf of the team i'd like to thank everyone who turned up to our FILM FRIDAY screening last night. You guys were absolutely awesome. Familiar faces and plenty of new ones too.
    It's always interesting to hear other peoples views on movies and IDLEWILD was just another example of how differently we take in what we see and also what experience some of you voiced.
    I spoke to a couple that had totally opposing views on the film. The man loved it but couldn't undertsand the use of Jazz music and rap, in trying to contextualise the films era. His partner thought the film was completely disjointed.

      Hi Mel. I know you don't wanna feel left out, so you too should feel free to chat and exhange dialogue, particularly over movies.
