CAN I KICK IT? / feat Captain Marvel / Recap

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

Now that we’re screening CAN I KICK IT? on both floors of Songbyrd (three screens in total) we’ve been able to amplify the experience via more space for attendees along with benefiting from the sound system from Songbyrd’s first floor.

Thanks for everyone who attended and spread the word and thanks to Songbyrd for hosting.

We’re taking a short break in June with us again conducting CAN I KICK IT? outdoors, in partnership with the DowntownDC BID, at Freedom Plaza, so we hope everyone can attend.  The outdoor versions, due to the huge scale, take our experience to another level and should not be missed.  They take place every Tues from June 5 – July 10, so be sure to check out the schedule here.
