CAN I KICK IT? / feat Cleopatra Jones / 8.27.19

For next CAN I KICK IT? at Songbyrd, on Tues Aug 27th, we’re pleased to announce that we’ll be screening the blaxploitation classic Cleopatra Jones.

If you’re unfamiliar with the title, Cleopatra Jones is an undercover special agent for the United States Government. Overseas modeling is only a cover for her real job. Cleo is a Bond-like heroine with power and influence, her silver and black `73 Corvette Stingray (equipped with automatic weapons), and her martial arts ability. While she evokes the glory of a funk goddess, she remains loyal to her drug-ravaged community and her lover, Reuben Masters (Bernie Casey), who runs B&S House (a community home for recovering drug addicts).

DJ 2-Tone Jones sets the vibe with music starting around 6:30 with the movie starting around 7:30 PM.  Drink and food specials will be available.

CAN I KICK IT? is free and open to the public.

We hope to see you there!
