Summer Flicks x CAN I KICK IT? / feat Bloodsport / Recap

Our screening of Bloodsport insisted that you not overlook it – complete with an amazing DJ set by P.U.D.G.E Mental and an eye opening martial arts demonstration by Terence Nicholson, who conducted both a hand-form and weapons-form.

We essentially had the perfect trio: a thorough DJ set, which got the crowd open for a masterful martial arts demonstration, capped off by our CAN I KICK IT? version of Bloodsport.

See everyone next Tues July 17 for the final film of our outdoor series feat The Golden Child.  After that, we’re back at Songbyrd on Tues Aug 24 for Under Siege starring Steven Seagal.

Thank you to everyone who attended and thanks to our media partners for spreading the word.

Summer Flicks x CAN I KICK IT? / feat Romeo Must Die / Recap

We’re halfway thru our outdoor series and its great to see how, each week, the crowds continue to grow, in addition to how diverse the crowds are from literally every category of demographic.  Age, sex, ethnicity, religion, etc…these events are a testament to how art, not to mention a good time, can bring people together, from all walks of life.

Thank you to everyone who attended (including those who participated in the 90’s costume contest), thanks to DJ Miss H.E.R for setting the tone, and shouts to our media partners.

We look forward to seeing everyone next Tues. July 10 for Jean Claude Van-Damme’s breakout movie Bloodsport.

There’s nothing like having solid partners and thanks to the good people at the DowntownDC BID promotion for CAN I KICK IT? is back on the digital billboard in the heart of Chinatown in downtown Washington, DC (think Time Square in NYC), which is an incredibly big deal considering the billboard’s location and number of people who see it (100’s of thousands per day).

See you Tuesday.
