Apollo Film & Screen/Play Present: 30 Years of House Party

February 27, 8:00 pm

The Apollo celebrates 30 Years of House Party in an evening featuring performances, conversations and highlights from the musical and comedy cult classics House Party (1990) and House Party 2 (1991). These iconic films were among the first films to center the Black teenage experience for a mainstream audience.

30 Years of House Party will feature performances by Kid N’Play, r&b/hip-hop group Full Force, Lisa Lisa, and DJ Wiz and appearances by some of the film’s key players including A.J. Johnson; Darryl “Chill” Mitchell; writer and director Reginald Hudlin; producer Warrington Hudlin, and other special guests. This ultimate 90s throwback is a celebration of a pivotal moment in Black cinema and hip-hop history.
