To the Star and Shadow cinema for the preview of the Oscar-nominated Selma (released in the UK on 6 February), about the 1965 struggle for voting rights for African Americans. Martin Luther King led protest marches from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama, resulting in the passing of the Voting Rights Act, which prohibited racial discrimination in voting. 

We should never take for granted the right to vote, a right which many have died for and a right which in some countries is not available.

The preview showing was to raise funds for Journey to Justice , an exhibition and series of events to raise awareness of the civil rights struggle and to encourage people to take part in social justice action.  Journey to Justice is starting in Newcastle upon Tyne, with the exhibition opening at Discovery Museum on 4 April 2015.
