Dir. Abigail Spindel, Paulo Cesar Toledo | Brazil, 2016 | 70min | appropriate 15+ | Portuguese with English subtitles
Young, queer Beyoncé superfans camp out in the queue two months before her show, and this documentary captures all their hip-shaking, community-forming, diehard obsession with Queen Bey.
Dir. Bill Condon | USA, 2006 | 131min | BBFC 12
Beyoncé, Jennifer Hudson and Anika Noni Rose form the ultimate 60s girl group - The Dreamettes! Desperate for fame and fortune they find themselves at first being uplifted, then pushed and pulled apart by their managers and the music industry. Based on the hit West End show, this Oscar-winning film is now a classic. Singing along is *strongly* encouraged!
£7 double bill, £5 for single screening
