This cinematic journey through the birth of hip-hop features live DJs pre- and post-screenings. Tonight, a special Sunday double feature: First, the iconic breakdancing movie, Breakin' (1984, Joel Silberg). Then, Beat Street (1984, Stan Lathan), another seminal effort in taking hip-hop to the streets and screens. Arabian Prince will DJ before and after the films. For more on the films, read Ernest Hardy's article.
