Hmm, looks like there's no performances scheduled...
Not to worry, we've got lots of other shows to choose from. Check them out below.

Turquoise Jones is a single mom who holds down a household, a rebellious teenager, and pretty much everything that goes down at Wayman's BBQ & Lounge. Turquoise is also a bona fide beauty queen - she was once crowned Miss Juneteenth, a title commemorating the day slaves in Texas were freed - two years after the Emancipation Proclamation. Life didn't turn out as beautifully as the title promised, but Turquoise, determined to right her wrongs, is cultivating her daughter, Kai, to become Miss Juneteenth, even if Kai wants something else.

Nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance and Best Texan Film at SXSW this film is an honest look at black life in the rural American South.

This film is part of our Black History Month programme. This October the majority of films we screen will showcase black filmmakers and stories, highlighting some incredible work by outstanding black talent
