In 1971, Aretha Franklin, the undisputed Queen of Soul, brought producer Jerry Wexler, her backup singers, and the legendary Atlantic Records rhythm section to The New Temple Missionary Baptist Church in Los Angeles to record an album of gospel music before an enthusiastic live audience. The result, “Amazing Grace”, went on to become one of the biggest albums of Aretha Franklin’s career and one of her most beloved works.
Hyde Park Picture House has partnered with Natasha, our Equality & Liberation Officer, introducing Liberate LUU. This screening is part of a series of films which share the experiences and perspectives of diverse, underrepresented and often marginalised communities.
This screening is taking place at the University of Leeds Outdoor Screen – presented by the Hyde Park Picture House and Leeds University Union. For more details about this venue, visit the University of Leeds Outdoor Screen venue page on the HPPH website.
If bad weather is forecast, we will contact you on the morning of the performance and we will endeavour to provide an alternative indoor location. If an outdoor screening goes ahead but we do experience light rain, free ponchos will be made available to everyone. In the event of unexpected heavy rain, the screening will be halted and customers will receive an email allowing them to book a free ticket to a future screening.
