Join me and fellow members to watch the film 'The Hate U Give.' We'll meet beforehand in the bar of the cinema at 6.00pm so that we can all say 'hello' and those wanting a drink/snacks can buy them, watch the film at 6.30pm and then meet again afterwards. For those that would like, we can go for a drink and a chat and to reflect upon the film after. Look forward to meeting some of you soon. I'll let you know my seat number when I have booked it so that hopefully we can sit together. My mobile no. for anyone that cant find us is:[masked]. I'll let you know what I'll be wearing. Tickets can be bought online or by phoning the box office or on the day. Tickets cost £ Film Synopsis: Starr Carter is constantly switching between two worlds: the poor, mostly black, neighbourhood where she lives and the rich, mostly white, prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Now, facing pressures from all sides of the community, Starr must find her voice and stand up for what's right. THE HATE U GIVE is based on the critically acclaimed New York Times bestseller by Angie Thomas and stars Amanda Stenberg as Starr, with Russell Hornsby, Regina Hall, Common, Anthony Mackie and Issa Rae.

It's a film that contains multitudes, and only asks for a world willing to do the same. Entertaining, enraging, and ultimately deeply moving, "The Hate U Give" is poised to be a hit, and deserves to be. Solidly engineered to engage viewers across racial/economic/political spectrums. There is insight, detail and pertinent relevance to this film that cannot be shaken. It faces that issue head-on and challenges audiences to do something about it. 'The Hate U Give' is wholesome and heartbreaking. It's visceral and at the same time makes so much sense. The Hate U Give succeeds spectacularly. It's anchored by Stenberg's dynamic performance, but the rest of the cast is uniformly terrific. What to Bring: A smile and sense of friendship, support, interest and enjoyment :)
