Since the 12th of September 2014, we are a revival movie house popping up in Echo Park, East Hollywood, Leimert Park & Oakland, California, showcasing retro classics by black and brown talent. From musical fantasy The Wiz to 80s martial arts Last Dragon & Spike Lee’s semi-autobiographical Crooklyn, we screen buried gems in black and brown cinema. Take a look at the lineup for the Aero and Egyptian in Los Angeles, CA., 93% of the films on their roster do not celebrate the tapestry of races and cultures of America.
More importantly, we are more than a movie. We build community. When the movie is over, we turn to each other as an audience and talk about the movie’s social and spiritual significance. When you leave our theater, you feel inspired, connected to a larger community.
Great movie and great conversation. It was great to meet up with folks who appreciate Black cinema.
I had one of the dopest intimate & nostalgic movie experiences here yesterday while watching Dead Presidents & the discussion afterwards was thought provoking! Will definitely be back!
Great atmosphere and great discussion. So glad I found out about this wonderful group!
Lots of fun seeing the movie again . Wonderful to have a packed house. Discussion and dining out afterwards , priceless. It was great seeing everyone and meeting new people.
