CAN I KICK IT / feat Black Panther / Recap

One of our goals with our first screening, last Tues, was to set a tone and a vibe for this year’s series and certainly give anyone new to CAN I KICK IT? an understanding of how we watch, which is different from the norm.  We, essentially, want to give people a wholly new movie-going experience and we hope that its an experience that they feel is theirs, regardless if they’ve seen the movie or not, but to also enjoy sharing that experience with others via social media or inviting/bringing friends and family.

We hope we’re able to establish all of the above with our screening of Black Panther.

Thank you to our partner DowntownDC BID, all of our sponsors and media partners, and thank you, most importantly, to everyone who’s been attending and spreading the word.  This is an experience for everyone.

We hope to see everyone next Tues June 18th for Deadpool.  Please keep in mind this is an “R” rated film that contains strong language and content and is suggested for mature audiences only.
