Black Cinema Club

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 politically. There will be a post-screening discussion that digs into the synopsis, themes, and subject of the film.

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

Oh yeah...it's FREE! So, come join us!

March's Feature:

"Let the Fire Burn"
Director: Jason Osder

On May 13, 1985, a longtime feud between the city of Philadelphia and controversial radical urban group MOVE came to a deadly climax. By order of local authorities, police dropped military-grade explosives onto a MOVE-occupied rowhouse. TV cameras captured the conflagration that quickly escalated—and resulted in the tragic deaths of eleven people (including five children) and the destruction of 61 homes. It was only later discovered that authorities decided to “...let the fire burn.” Using only archival news coverage and interviews, first-time filmmaker Osder has brought to life one of the most tumultuous and largely forgotten clashes between government and citizens in modern American history.
