Black Cinema Club Double Feature

Black Cinema Club is a monthly gathering held on the first Sunday of every month for those with an appreciation for film and black culture.

Each month, we'll show a film significant to the black experience: culturally, socially, and/or politically. There will be a post-screening discussion that digs into the synopsis, themes, and subject matter of the film.

Think of it as a book club...but with movies.


For the month of October, we are having TWO Black Cinema Club screenings! This special edition of BCC will include a double feature of the black horror genre.

**There will not a post-screening discussion.**

NOTE: This screening is not held on the first Sunday on the month.

Halloween's Features:

"Def By Temptation"
Directed by James Bond III
Starring James Bond III, Kadeem Hardison, Cynthia Bond & Bill Nunn

Joel (James Bond III), a quiet divinity student from North Carolina, starts to question his faith. So he heads to New York to visit his friend K (Hardison), a struggling actor, who takes him out bar-hopping. They meet a gorgeous seductress (Cynthia Bond) who turns out to be a succubus, a demon spirit luring black lotharios to their deaths. When she sets her eyes on Joel, K turns to the help of Dougie (Nunn), a drunken cop who specializes in supernatural investigations. (via Google)

Ganja & Hess is a 1973 experimental horror film that follows the exploits of anthropologist Dr. Hess Green (Jones) who becomes a vampire after being stabbed by his intelligent, but unstable, assistant (Gunn) with an ancient cursed dagger.
