We couldn’t be more excited to open the latest edition of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Black Panther, this week at the Bijou by the Bay!

Now, I know what you’re thinking; another super hero movie? Didn’t we just show one of those? Well yes, we did (in fact, we’re playing it as our FNF this Friday)

Thirty one-year-old filmmaking prodigy Ryan Coogler (who directed the terrific "Rocky" installment “Creed") and an outstanding cast of Oscar winners and actors extraordinaire (Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o, Forrest Whitaker) lead a Shakespearean epic that is already being called not just the best Marvel movie ever, but the best movie of the year.

But this isn't just another superhero movie. This is an important watershed moment. This is powerful work of cinema that is as joyously entertaining as it is revolutionary. This is a beautiful celebration of pride and identity unlike anything you've ever seen. This is the movies at their most delightful and meaningful. And we here at the State and Bijou simply had to be a part of it.

You absolutely don’t want to miss it!
