Evening Cinema: Hidden Figures (PG)
Wednesday 11th October
7.30pm. Doors and Bar open at 6.45pm
The incredible untold true story of Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan and Mary Jackson, brilliant African-American women working at NASA, who served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit. This stunning achievement galvanized the world and inspired generations to dream big.
Each of these women showed, in their own dignified way just how much they quietly, but very politely, stood up to racial and sexist prejudice, broke down barriers and proved that anyone with talent deserves chances and recognition.
A brilliant and inspirational film.
