    I remember seeing this movie while I was at University. I am impressed that there is somewhere in London that has organised events like this and then I read further down and the Venue has been closed..... Hmmm. In hope that doors open soon.

    Receiving lots of concerned texts/calls from loyal BCC supporters asking about the hopefully temporary closure of Mella Centre and the effect on Film Friday screenings. We hope to have good news regarding future Film Friday screenings asap. Meanwhile it is so reassuring and we are so thankful that members have made the night so popular and the talk of the town. BCC wishes that the interest and support continues regardless of location. Watch this space.
    Lets hope the closure of the Mella Centre is temporary as it was a hub for the black community to hosts many community events. If it survives lets all continue to support.

      Hi Ladies, sadly it is true and unfortunately this has temporarily affected our FILM FRIDAY series of screenings. We hope to have some positive news for you shortly but I will officially announce the cancellation of the programmed FILM FRIDAY movies, later this morning. Thanks for being on the ball and for your support too.
