  • The SoCal African American Cinema Connection

     My husband and I attended the 8pm showing that did not start until 8:30 due to the director and members of the cast being late. Leon and a couple of actors with smaller parts were on time.

  • The SoCal African American Cinema Connection

     I enjoy the dialogue, perspective and great discussions about Afrocentric cinema with others exchanging the same kind of great energy about Black cinema as a whole.

  • The SoCal African American Cinema Connection

     I was able to get a seat close to the front as the movie was almost sold out. I was in good company as I met a fascinating older couple who made it an even better experience. Speechless.

     Baggage Claim was entertaining and thought provoking. It pointed out to me that as mothers, we place a lot of pressure on our daughters to get that ring. I also see how very little control they have in doing that. Marriage is only part of the goal, one has to also marry well.

     I met a couple who heard about Red Hook Summer through this group though they are not members. They, like me, spent time looking for Chris but we found each other instead and had dinner. We're meeting for other movie-related things in the future. The MEET-UP portion of this event worked for me. (Smile)
