CAN I KICK IT? / feat Avengers Infinity War / Recap

Its almost fitting that we ended our CAN I KICK IT? x Downtown Summer Flicks outdoor movie screening series with Avengers Infinity War, given the film’s huge success and its significance to the story in that line Marvel Studios’ movies.  And despite this being our rain-date, a good time was had all-the-same.

We of course would like to thank the DowntownDC BID for once again bringing us back for a third year, thank you to all of our sponsors and media partners, props to all of the guest DJs, martial artists who conducted demos, and the cosplayers, salute to everyone who helped on-site and spread the word, and a huge thank you to everyone who attended – some who attended multiple screenings.

Our summer is far from over, with our next screening happening at The Cary Theater (Cary, NC.) featuring KILL BILL Vol. 1, on Aug. 2nd.  For tickets and additional info click here.
