    Sounds interesting! I would love to see that Muhammad Ali documentary that aired some time last year. I missed it when it first came out. Please let me know if you guys will be offering another film screening of it. Thanks

      Hi Alqamar! "The Trials of Muhammad Ali" is no longer in theaters, and paying the screening rights would make it too expensive to show at BloomBars... but, If someone is willing to volunteer their home, we could host a "home" screening. :-)

    I saw this a while ago; it is a great film. I'm sure everyone attending will enjoy it.
