Join us in the cinema for a very special preview screening of the new film by director Ava DuVernay.

Written and directed by Academy Award nominee Ava DuVernay, Origin chronicles the tragedy and triumph of Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Isabel Wilkerson as she investigates a global phenomenon of epic proportions. Starring Academy Award nominee Aunjanue Ellis-Taylor (King Richard), Isabel experiences unfathomable personal loss and love as she crosses continents and cultures to craft one of the defining American books of our time.

Inspired by the New York Times best-seller “Caste,” Origin explores the mystery of history, the wonders of romance and a fight for the future of us all.

Origin will be released in cinemas on Thursday 4 April. Join us in the cinema for a very special preview screening.
