November 27 only



Join us for a free screening of Black Panther with a special live streamed conversation with Director Ryan Coogler.

Black Panther returns to the big screen for one night only with free screenings at nonprofit art house theaters nationwide, including ours! The Roxie community will have an opportunity to experience the acclaimed film once again and hear questions answered directly by local filmmaker Ryan Coogler. Leading up to and during the Q&A, attendees are invited to submit their questions on Twitter with the hashtag #AskBlackPanther.

Black Panther is director Ryan Coogler’s take on a modern African hero and a utopian vision of what an uncolonized Africa might look like. The film explores the conflict between two powerful men, one African and one African-American, who are mirror images of each other, each grappling with his own history, home, and very identity. When Prince T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman) becomes king of the hidden, technologically advanced kingdom Wakanda, he is forced to defend his throne against rogue mercenary Erik Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan). Wakanda is also alive with strong, intelligent women—from Wakanda’s elite all-female security force, led by Okoye (Danai Gurira), to the international spy Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o), to T’Challa’s tech-savvy sister (Letitia Wright) and mother (Angela Bassett)—who are portrayed as equals to the men they protect and advise. See the full list of participating theaters here.

Presented by Film Comment, a publication of Film Society of Lincoln Center, and supported by the Art House Convergence.

All attendees will receive a free one-year digital subscription to Film Comment magazine. Coogler, director and co-writer of Black Panther, was featured on the cover of Film Comment’s March-April 2018 issue with a story by Devika Girish. Nicolas Rapold, the magazine’s editor-in-chief, will moderate the discussion.

Directed by Ryan Coogler. 134 min. DCP. 2018.
