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!

Paid in Full is the kind of movie that shows the flash, the hustle, and the power that such money can bring, but it also shows the unrelenting problems that can come from such a life and the constant paranoia that has to emerge in order to keep a person alive and on their toes just in case someone comes calling, wanting more than what they were promised.

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

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.

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.
