If you were one of the hundreds of people who attended one of the two August screenings of A League Of Their Own, we’d like to thank you again for coming. Hopefully your tears have dried up (ours haven’t) because we’ve got news you’re going to want to see. On Wednesday, September 25 come and help us celebrate the day before the weekend a little early at Avalon Theater‘s screening of Ice Cube, DJ Pooh, and F. Gary Gray’s comedy masterpiece, Friday. Tickets are on sale now!
Craig Jones is a 22-year-old resident of South Central Los Angeles who lives with his parents and sister. The movie follows him through an entire Friday, exactly one day after he was fired from his job for allegedly stealing boxes (spoiler: he didn’t do it). Craig spends his unfortunate day off considering his professional options and interacting with his neighbors, especially his buddy, Smokey, who smokes much more than he sells. An angry girlfriend, an angry dope dealer, and a once-in-a-generation character named Deebo make this particular Friday a tough one for everyone involved. How will it play out? Is it a distant prequel to Friday The 13th? Show up and see for yourself!
Ice Cube and Chris Tucker turn in great performances as Craig and Smokey, but we’d be hard-pressed to name one person in this movie that doesn’t make a strong impression. It’s an amazing ensemble of hilarious people (except Nia Long, who isn’t particularly funny in this, but still great nonetheless) that come together to make one of the best movies of the past 30 years. Michael Clarke Duncan is in it for like 10 seconds, so see if you can spot him.
Tickets to the 7 p.m. screening are $5 and Lakefront Brewery will be our sponsor, as always, because they are awesome.
