Coming to America Film Screening

August 31 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Historic Academy Theatre, 524 Main Street
Lynchburg, VA 24504 United States

Coming to America Film Screening     The Academy Center of the Arts presents an interactive tribute to the John Landis legendary comedy, Coming to America, starring Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall.   The film tells the story of Prince Akeem (Murphy) of Zamunda who on his 21st birthday is to marry and spend the rest of his life with a woman he’s never met. Instead, Akeem breaks with tradition and travels to America with his trusty right-hand man Semmi (Hall) to find true love. The ensuing culture shock of the guileless pair navigating the gritty streets of ’80s NYC is pure comedy gold.   In addition to the film screening and nods to Zamunda, McDowell’s, and Soul Glow, the Academy will also raise funds to benefit the Jubilee Family Development Center by transforming the Theatre into a barber shop from 5:30pm to 7:30pm that evening.   A limited number of “Premium Cuts” will be available from Director's Cut Barbershop. All funds raised from the Premium Cuts will benefit the Jubilee Center and their mission of supporting and teaching families to become self-sufficient, reliable, successful members of society.   Consider this your royal invitation to laugh, support a great cause,…
