Belle *Based on the Inspiring True Story* FREE Movie Screening!!!

Location visible to members


BELLE is inspired by the true story of Dido Elizabeth Belle (Gugu Mbatha-Raw), the illegitimate mixed race daughter of Admiral Sir John Lindsay (Matthew Goode). Raised by her aristocratic great-uncle Lord Mansfield (Tom Wilkinson) and his wife (Emily Watson), Belle’s lineage affords her certain privileges, yet her status prevents her from the traditions of noble social standing. While her cousin Elizabeth (Sarah Gadon) chases suitors for marriage, Belle is left on the sidelines wondering if she will ever find love. After meeting an idealistic young vicar’s son bent on changing society, he and Belle help shape Lord Mansfield’s role as Lord Chief Justice to end slavery in England.

The movie starts at 7p. To receive event passes, please log on to:

***Please Note: These free screenings are offered to us as a group in order to build word of mouth for the film. The only catch is they are overbooked to ensure the theater is full and arriving early is highly recommended as seating is not guaranteed and is first-come, first-served.

Enjoy the show!!!
