“A slick, smooth-talking, womanizing young Black DJ falls hard for an enigmatic woman he’s just met. Things take a turn for the worse, when she is found dead in his apartment. It turns out she was killed by the local mob, which is trying to frame him for the crime. With the police after him, he calls on some of his old acquaintances to help clear his name and avenge the woman’s death.”
Come on over starting at 7 for a special display of Blax-Fu posters & photos, hot dogs a-grilling and heavy funk sounds spinning loud. The movie will roll around 8:30.
