Black Film Series: Love and Basketball

  • Map

    The Appell Center invites you to the Capitol Theatre to enjoy our new, monthly Black Film Series - a series of films that celebrate the culture of the African-American and Black communities!

    In 1981 in L.A., Monica moves in next door to Quincy. They're 11, and both want to play in the NBA, just like Quincy's dad. Their love-hate relationship lasts into high school, with Monica's edge and Quincy's top-dog attitude separating them, except when Quincy's parents argue and he climbs through Monica's window to sleep on the floor. As high school ends, they come together as a couple, but within a year, with both of them playing ball at USC, Quincy's relationship with his father takes an ugly turn, and it leads to a break up with Monica. Some years later, their pro careers at a crossroads, they meet again. It's time for a final game of one-on-one with high stakes.

    Snacks and refreshments available! Tickets can be purchased in advance or before the film starts.

    Kids 12 and under need to be accompanied by an adult.
