Blackout Cinema

Blackout Cinema A pop-up movie house, building Community through excellence in black and brown retro cinema.
Building Community
(25)

After MENACE II SOCIETY it felt like we the audience talked for hours in the theater about life, societal pressure, and making it out of tough situations. We're not just screening a movie, but shrinking this big city through art and a dynamic group discussion when the movie ends. That's the heart and soul of the Blackout Cinema. Our event organizers, Kingslee, Emill & Lyn, love movies and love debating movies! Book your seat now for our next movie event!

Mission: An intimate movie experience

Black Movie Fridays: Love Jones Is The Iconic Black Love Movie But for Me, Brown Sugar Is The GOAT

https://verysmartbrothas.theroot.com/black-movie-fridays-love-jones-is-the-iconic-black-lov-1841697191

The 1990s and early aughts were a good time for black movies. From Boyz n The Hood to Menace II Society to What’s Love Got To Do With It to sleeper classics like The Wood, almost every year we got several dope black movies that showed us some version of blackness that existed in our communities. I...

Interesting where change begins.

The Poussey Washington Fund, which will play out in fictional version on the final season of the Netflix series, targets a range of issues so the "characters can continue to make an impact after the show has come to an end."

After The Movie

This is where the fun begins. We talk as an audience after the movie. We eat together after the movie. That's the heart and soul of the Blackout Cinema. You would be surprised how much we have in common - the magic in the air. We're not just screening a movie, but we’re building community - shrinking a big city through black and brown retro cinema.
