An immersive profile of ground-breaking and influential choreographer Alvin Ailey, the brilliant and enigmatic man who, when confronted by a world that refused to embrace him, was determined to build one that would.  

Alongside archive interviews with Ailey himself, colleagues and fellow dance greats round out the story of this trailblazer who, through dance, interpreted the Black American experience with grace, strength and unparalleled beauty. 

Running time: 1h55, including ads and trailers.

Following the change in COVID guidance there are no longer distancing measures in place in the cinema screens, but face coverings must be worn unless you're eating or drinking, and we're requesting that customers take their own rubbish with them at the end of the film and put it in the bins provided. Cinemas will be thoroughly cleaned between each screening, and there is hand sanitiser available throughout the building.
