Take a trip to Wakanda (by way of The Loft Cinema) and celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr. Day with all-day free screenings of the blockbuster action film, Black Panther!
“A jolt of a movie! Black Panther shakes up the Marvel universe. In its emphasis on black imagination, creation and liberation, the movie becomes an emblem of a past that was denied and a future that feels very present.” – Manohla Dargis, New York Times
Marvel Studios’ action packed superhero epic Black Panther follows T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman) who, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king. But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king—and Black Panther—is tested as he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people and their way of life. Also starring Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Andy Serkis and Forest Whitaker, Black Panther is a thrilling, imaginative and groundbreaking action extravaganza from director/co-writer Ryan Coogler (Creed, Fruitvale Station). More than another superhero movie, Black Panther is powerful cinematic work that is as joyously entertaining as it is revolutionary. (Dir. by Ryan Coogler, 2018, USA/South Africa/South Korea/Australia, in English/Swahili/Nama/Xhosa/Korean with English subtitles, 134 mins., Rated PG-13)
