Fathom Events take you on a journey to a classic...that almost didn't happen when Robert Townsend's Making the Five Heartbeats premieres in cinemas on Monday, August 27. A love letter to the movie's fans, as well as a master-class on filmmaking, Making The Five Heartbeats is told through behind-the-scenes footage and personal stories with the five stars of the film (Townsend, Michael Wright, Harry J Lennix, Leon Robinson, Tico Wells), plus co-writer Keenen Ivory Wayans, and the film's bad guy you love to hate, "Big Red" (Hawthorne James).

In addition to the documentary, attendees will view an exclusive welcome from Townsend.
