BLACK CAESAR 35mm aka Godfather Of Harlem d. Larry Cohen, 1973 at The Prince Charles (04 AUG 18:25 – £1 Member Screening).

“Growing up on the tough streets of Harlem, Tommy Gibbs (Fred Williamson) has his life made even harder by John McKinney (Art Lund), a crooked cop who breaks the boy’s leg, crippling him for life. Drawing on his anger at the racism he faces on a daily basis, Tommy grows up to become the crime kingpin of Harlem. Now that he has the power, he aims to take down New York’s Mafia bosses – and also get bloody revenge on his nemesis, McKinney, no matter what the cost.” (The PCC)
