February is Black History Month, and to help celebrate, The St. Louis Black Film Festival will be presenting a Tribute to the 86-year old Sidney Poitier at their Classic Black Film Festival. Lucky St. Louis movie buffs will have the opportunity to view eight vintage Sidney Poitier on the big screen. Every Thursday in February, The St. Louis Black Film Festival will be presenting two Poitier films at St Louis Cinemas Galleria (630 St Louis Galleria, Richmond Heights, Mo 63117).

The Sidney Poitier Tribute Film Festival continues this Thursday night (February 13th) with two Poitier classics; To Sir With Love and In The Heat Of The Night

Poitier played a British, engineer-educated novice teacher of a challenging classroom of undisciplined English teenagers in To Sir With Love in 1967. The title song, which became a hit, is warbled by Lulu, who plays one of the students as does sexy Suzy Kendall and Judy Geeson »
