Our final CAN I KICK IT?, of the Hudson River Parks’ Hudson RiverFlicks outdoor screening series, couldn’t have been more hip-hop (from its early beginnings), an exercise in resourcefulness, or DIY.
The passing weather made it impossible for us to conduct the screening at the designated location, so the team at Hudson River Parks had a plan B: take an empty hanger/warehouse space that they never activate that had only 1 working light, bring in a generator for power, use one of the exposed bring walls for a screen, open up the garage doors, and bring chairs and the A/V equipment. The result was a uniquely memorable experience that was intensified by a raw space in New York. Classic.
The only downside were the people who could not make it due to our quick location change as well as those who were unfortunately turned away, as we reached our 200 max capacity very early.
We’ve had an incredibly fun run with the two CAN I KICK IT? screenings that we were fortunate to conduct as apart of Hudson River Parks’ series and we’re hopeful to come back next year.
Thanks again to Hudson River Parks for bringing us, props to everyone who helped, salute to everyone who spread the word, and thank you to everyone who attended.

New York is one of the cities that we’ve been to raring to rock and, despite some technical difficulties, we more than made sure to make our impression felt with our CAN I KICK IT? version of the ultimate NYC cinematic classic The Warriors.
We sincerely appreciate the over 500 people in attendance who stuck with us, props to the tech-savvy security guard who came in in the ninth hour with a solution, salute to our team who helped behind-the-scenes, and thank you to Hudson River Park for bringing us out to open their Hudson RiverFlicks outdoor series.
We look forward to coming back August 14th with Berry Gordy’s classic The Last Dragon, so be sure to plan ahead, and for the full recap click Read the rest of this entry
We’re pleased to announce that we’re finally bringing CAN I KICK IT? to NYC and we’ll be conducting it three times through the course of the summer and for our first trip we’re excited to be conducting it as apart of an organization called Hudson River Park for two dates of their popular outdoor series: Hudson RiverFlicks.
For our first date, Wed July 10th, we’ll be screening the ultimate O.G. New York (and hip-hop) classic The Warriors. And if you attended our sold-out screening of this film last year at The Kennedy Center then you already know how we completely changed how you understand this film and for this upcoming screening we promise that we will do the same times two!
We have a couple of surprises that will be announced later, but the film will start at 8:30 PM and these events are free/open to the public.
