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
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.
