Free movie series aims to spark conversations

2020 ReelRap, free movie nights hosted by the marketing firm "outside the box," launches with a double-feature salute to "Harriet" director and co-screenwriter Kasi Lemmons.

"Eve’s Bayou," Lemmons’ 1997 directorial debut – which she also wrote – will screen at 7 p.m. Friday, followed by "Fear of a Black Hat" (1994) in which Lemmons stars.

“2020 ReelRap is envisioned as a way for people who like movies and film history to connect, ‘conversate’ and maybe experience something socially diverse. Mostly though, I hope it’s a way to decompress and have fun,” said coordinator Jessica Thorpe.

The ReelRap schedule also includes: "Carmen Jones" (1954) and "Bustin’ Loose" (1981) at 7 p.m. Feb. 14, "Uncle Tom’s Cabin" (1927 silent) at 4 p.m. Feb. 23. "Get Out" (2017) and "Night of the Living Dead" (1968) at 7 p.m. March 13, and "Hallelujah!" (1929) and "Imitation of Life" (1934) at 4 p.m. March 22.

Movies will be shown at "outside the box," in the carriage house at 1272 Delaware Ave. Admission is free, but reservations are required by emailing with “2020 ReelRap Ticket” in the subject line. Seating is first come, first served. For information, call 445-5122.
