The 'other four lads from Liverpool' tell their story from the tough streets of Toxteh to the bright lights of New York, and international stardom as Britain's first million-selling soul and funk band. Against a backdrop of racism and social and political turmoil, The Real Thing were the first all-black British band to hit #1 in the pop charts - with the perennial 'You To Me Are Everything' - and as a result became the original black pin-ups for teenage fans in the UK. For the very first time, original band members Eddy Amoo, Chris Amoo and Dave Smith reveal the brutally honest truth behind their trailblaizing 50-year career.
After the screening, there will be a Q&A with director Simon Sheridan and original band members Chris Amoo and Dave Smith, hosted by Jeremy Prince.
