Menace II Society

Saturday, July 20
Doors: 6:30pm // Show: 7pm
This gritty coming-of-age drama throws us into the Watts neighborhood of Los Angeles, where Caine Lawson (Tyrin Turner) is juggling high school graduation with the harsh realities of gang life.  While Caine dreams of escaping the cycle of violence, his homie O-Dog (Larenz Tate) is the walking definition of “hoodlum.”  Think popped collars, endless slang, and a hair-trigger temper that could make a drive-by erupt faster than a shaken can of soda.  Expect unflinching portrayals of gang warfare, raw emotions, and the iconic line: “Did you see the way she looked at me? I bet she gonna call the police.”  This ain’t your mama’s after-school special.  Menace II Society is a powerful punch to the gut that will leave you questioning the allure and danger of the streets.  Just remember, in the hood, staying alive can feel like winning the lottery, but even then, the real prize might be somewhere else entirely.
Beer, wine, liquor, & concessions available in lobby.
