Our second CAN I KICK IT? screening in NYC proved to be just as special as our first (the week prior) despite the unfortunate blackout that occurred in Midtown Manhattan, which eliminated power from nearby buildings, trains, even Times Square.
We’re fortunate and happy to provide our unique experience for those who made it and we’re hopeful that those who were en-route (as well as those who attended) made it home safely.
Despite the power-loss a good time was definitely had as we blessed the crowd with Tai Chi Master (starring Jet Li) – the surprise film for the New York Asian Film Festival’s “Secret Screening” event, which closed out the festival’s programming.
Thank you to the NYAFF for bringing us out and we appreciated all of your hospitality and thank you to everyone who attended and helped to spread the word. To check out the full recap click Read the rest of this entry
Our CAN I KICK IT? screening of Captain Marvel shaped up to be the highest attended film in the history of the DowntownDC Summer Flicks series. The evening also included vibe-setting opening DJ sets by DJ Miss H.E.R and Cleveland Browne, an activation by JUMP Bikes – who brought their signature bikes and scooters for people to demo, and a hugely dynamic martial arts demonstration from our friend Philippe Prosper and his brother James Whitley, who performed using weapons and hand-to-hand styles.
We hope to see you next Tues, July 16th, for Avengers Infinity War, which is the final movie in our series, and for the full recap from Tues click Read the rest of this entry
For Thor, the weather was what we wanted, which led to creating the vibe started by DJ 2-Tone and picked up by DJ G-Rock.
The music for the evening’s movie, of course inspired by the film, ranged from avante-garde hip hop to classic rock, helping to revisit and enhance the story’s narrative, punchlines, and visual effects.
Thanks to the DowntownDC BID, Terence Nicholson and G-Rock for elevating the vibe, the many who came, those who spread the word, and our media partners.
See you next Tues (July 2nd for Avengers Infinity War) and for the full recap click Read the rest of this entry
We couldn’t imagine a better way to start the “official” beginning of summer than to conduct CAN I KICK IT? at The National Gallery of Art – East Building (their contemporary wing), which also, and more importantly, helped to them kick-off their new “Japanese Animals” art exhibition. The collection is an historic exhibition of 17 centuries of animals in Japanese art that rarely leave Japan.
We certainly hope people enjoyed how we do storytelling via our curation of music to the newly minted anime Batman Ninja, we encourage you to check out this incredible exhibition, and we look forward to the day rocking the amazing space that is the NGA.
Thanks again to the NGA for bringing us and thank you to everyone who attended.
