"THE INTRUDER"

screened April 30th

LITTTLE w/Issa Rae

screened April 9th


SYNOPSIS: Girls Trip’s Regina Hall and Black-ish’s Marsai Martin both star as Jordan Sanders — Hall as the take-no-prisoners tech mogul adult version of Jordan and Martin as the 13-year-old version of her who wakes up in her adult self’s penthouse just before a do-or-die presentation. Insecure’s Issa Rae plays Jordan’s long-suffering assistant April, the only one in on the secret that her daily tormentor is now trapped in an awkward tween body just as everything is on the line. Little is an irreverent new comedy about the price of success, the power of sisterhood and having a second chance to grow up — and glow up — right. Will Packer, blockbuster producer of Girls Trip, the Ride Along franchise, and ten movies that have opened No. 1 at the U.S. box office, including Night School, No Good Deed and Think Like a Man, brings an all-new perspective to the body-swap comedy.

If Beale Street Could Talk

December 17th AMC, it was a great turnout!
You packed the house! Thanks!!
Baldwin advance movie screening in Boston

Opening Date: December 25th
Director: Barry Jenkins
Cast: KiKi Layne, Stephan James, Colman Domingo, Teyonah Parris, Michael Beach, Dave Franco, Diego Luna, Pedro Pascal, Ed Skrein, with Brian Tyree Henry and Regina King.
MPAA Rating: R for language and some sexual content.

What we saw in this movie was a genuine love story, a totally Black TITANIC-sized love story experience between a 19 year old black Woman and and 22 year old black Man. And the movie was a social commentary about Black men and police relations, exposing how it feels to be wrongly accused by police and their hand-picked eyewitnesses.

SYNOPSIS:Based on the novel by James Baldwin, If Beale Street Could Talk, is the story of Tish, a newly engaged Harlem woman who races against the clock to prove her lover’s innocence while carrying their first-born child to term. It is a celebration of love told through the story of a young couple, their families and their lives, trying to bring about justice through love, for love and the promise of the American dream.
