Sharp, funny, with a sprinkle of royal romance, ‘Coming To America (1988)’ is pure comedy gold. In what many describe as Eddie Murphy’s funniest performance, the film follows Prince Akeem on his journey from his African homeland across the world to a snow filled New York in search of his Queen. Supported by his royal servant (Arsenio Hall), Prince Akeem is determined to find his soulmate so he takes on the undercover life of a New Yorker to hilarious effect.

On December 14th, Block Party Cinema celebrates 30 years of this classic with a pop up screening at the brand new Streatham Space Project. Presented by a special guest comedian, just like the film the evening will be full of belly laughs, Afrobeats, classic 80’s tunes, Chrimbo cocktails, and of course plenty of festive vibes.

In classic Block Party style, kick back in one of our giant bean bags while you enjoy the film with a complimentary bag of popcorn in this awesome, new theatrical venue. Afrocentric festive fun at its finest!
