30th Anniversary Screening John Landis' COMING TO AMERICA (R, 1988, 117 min)

Eddie Murphy stars as a pampered African prince Akeem, who rebels against an arranged marriage and heads to America to find a new bride. Murphy's father (James Earl Jones) agrees to allow the prince 40 days to roam the U.S., sending the prince's faithful retainer Semmi (Arsenio Hall) along to make sure nothing untoward happens. To avoid fortune hunters, Prince Akeem conceals his true identity and gets a job at a fast-food restaurant. Murphy and Hall play multiple roles, and there are celebrity cameos peppered throughout-including the Duke Brothers (Don Ameche and Ralph Bellamy) from Trading Places.

and

BREAKIN' (PG, 1984, 90 min)

Pop culture was never the same after Breakin' erupted onto movie screens across the globe, exposing the mainstream world to raw energy and intensity of pop locking and break dancing! Lucinda Dickey, Adolfo «Shabba Doo» Quinones and Michael «boogaloo Shrimp» Chambers star as a trio of dancers who take on a rival gang in a battle to determine the best dance crew in the streets. Packed with fast-paced moves and featuring Boogaloo Shrimp's now-famous street-sweeping scene, this invogorating dance movie is a nonstop floor show of excitingly staged solid fun.
