The Film Boutique is back with its 2017 season showcasing the best in independent and mainstream urban/black films. Catch the best films; enjoy DJ’s in the bar, celebrities, after-parties and much more monthly here at the Regent St Cinema.

Kicking-off the season is a Pre-Valentines themed event and tribute to Ex-President and first lady Barack and Michelle Obama with a special screening of romantic drama Southside With You, with guest artiste live performance.

Inspired by Barack and Michelle Obama’s first date, Southside With You recounts the eventful summer day in 1989 when a charming young law associate named Barack Obama (Parker Sawyers) tries to woo reluctant attorney Michelle Robinson (Tika Sumpter) during a daylong date that takes them from an art exhibit to a screening of Spike Lee’s Do the Right Thing to a sweet first kiss outside of a Baskin-Robbins ice-cream parlour.
