After the success of our Zombieland screening back in February, we are teaming up with Shmitten Kitten and our friends over at The Trocadero for another Movie Monday event. This time we will be showing our favorite faux '70s Blaxploitation flick, Black Dynamite!
The party kicks off on Monday, April 26th at 6:30pm. The event will be 21+ and a mere $3. Not only does that $3 go towards a drink, but get there before 7pm and get a free bag of popcorn as well. In case you've never heard of the film (shame on you!), the over-the-top plot goes something like this:
Black Dynamite is a seamless recreation (it was even shot on 16mm!) of '70s Blaxploitation classics staring Michael Jai White (Spawn) as the ex-CIA, Vietnam veteran, Kung-fu master and ultimate badass, Black Dynamite. In a solid nod to the genre, “The Man” has not only killed Black Dynamite’s brother, but is pumping heroin into the local orphanage, and has even flooded the ghetto with a secret weapon disguised as common malt liquor. Of course, Black Dynamite is the only one who can stop him and get revenge for the death of his brother.To keep the '70s vibe of Black Dynamite going all night long at the Troc, we are going to have a costume contest, with prizes for the person with the most decade-correct apparel. And after the screening, you can look forward to a '70s disco dance party hosted by Shmitten Kitten, all for $3!
Black Dynamite wasn’t in theaters for very long and I can’t wait to see this film on the big screen. So come out, watch a film with the geeks at Geekadelphia and party with all the cuties from Shmitten Kitten.This is gonna be awesome. Here's the movie trailer for all of you jive turkeys.
We’ve got a Facebook event page. Feel free to RSVP and let us know you’re coming.
