Join us for a free screening of The Watermelon Woman in our pop-up cinema and event space, The Light House.


Set in Philadelphia, THE WATERMELON WOMAN is the story of Cheryl (Cheryl Dunye), a twenty-something black lesbian struggling to make a documentary about Fae Richards, a beautiful and elusive 1930s black film actress popularly known as "The Watermelon Woman."

The Watermelon Woman was nominated by Aislinn Evans from our Young Creatives group. The White House Young Creatives are a group of 15-25 year olds who meet fortnightly to share and learn creative skills, design innovative events and work with arts professionals.

The Light House is a new pop-up event space open in the White House Beacon Garden this summer. Designed by Central St Martins Architecture student, Conor Morris, it has been co-built with members of The White House community. It is available for use as a pop-up cinema, gallery and workshop space, as well as being Dagenham's only cinema. It is free, publicly accessible and will be a meeting point for people to communicate and share ideas.
