Film promises to be a knockout

ON Monday January 24 at the Playhouse Cinema, Louth Film Club will be screening a film featuring many of the greatest names in soul music and rhythm and blues, along with the world’s most famous boxer!

Soul Power is a record, never before shown, of the 1974 concert held in Kinshasa, in what was then Zaire, to coincide with Muhammad Ali’s fight with George Foreman — ‘the rumble in the jungle’.

This terrific film includes performances by the likes of James Brown, BB King, Bill Withers, Miriam Makeba, Hugh Masekela and Sister Sledge.

Soul Power is Certificate 12A. Tickets cost £3 for members or £5.70 (£4.50 concessions) for non-members. The show starts at 7.30pm.

It is the last film in the club’s current season. Details of its 2011/12 screenings, kicking off on Monday February 14, can be found in its new programme, available from Off The Beaten Tracks record show at 36 Aswell Street, Louth, or in Louth Library, the Playhouse Cinema or the Tourist Information Office.
