CAN I KICK IT? / feat Black Belt Jones / 1.11.20

CAN I KICK IT? is back for 2020 at Creative Alliance and in the spirit of starting the year off right we’re bringing you one of the most iconic martial arts movies featuring one of the most iconic martial artists: Black Belt Jones starring Jim Kelly.

If you’re unfamiliar with the story, the mafia wants to takeover the property of an African American karate school owned by the legendary Papa Byrd and Black Belt Jones, a friend of Byrd’s, is called to fend-off the mob and its henchmen through his unique style of martial arts.  Black Belt Jones is a true blaxploitation martial arts classic that you won’t want to miss.

CAN I KICK IT? / feat Big Trouble in Little China / Recap

Its been great to see how things have been building with our quarterly residency at Creative Alliance in Baltimore and our most recent CAN I KICK IT?, where we screened Big Trouble in Little China, is proof-positive of that stride.  Baltimore has a unique creative perspective and their arts and music scenes have always been accepting of a wide range of sub-genres for both visual art and live music.

And we’re pleased to announce that we’ll now be conducting CAN I KICK IT? at Creative Alliance every two months, so stay tuned for our September date, as we’ll be bringing you a popular yet cult-classic film from the 80’s starring some of that era’s most coveted action stars.  We have to admit – we’ll be stepping a bit outside of our wheel-house with this movie, but it certainly falls in-line with our aesthetic.

Thanks again to the Creative Alliance for bringing us to their space and thank you to everyone who attended.  For the full recap click Read the rest of this entry
