Pittsburgh’s ‘Movie Scene Queen,’ Merecedes J. Williams, celebrates seven years in business

The New Pittsburgh Courier’s film critic, Merecedes J. Williams, will celebrate seven years in business by being a guest bartender at Stanley’s Lounge in Homewood, 7403 Frankstown Ave., on Jan. 22 from 6 to 8 p.m. She will be joined by WAMO 100.1 FM’s Portia Foxx. All tips will directly benefit Williams’ Single Parent Project, an initiative that provides free movies, concessions and transportation to single-parent families, families with incarcerated parents, and foster families.

State Rep. Edward C. Gainey will present Williams with a state proclamation at Stanley’s Lounge to celebrate the business milestone and the corresponding community-based work.

In 2019, Williams distributed more than 4,200 free movie tickets, raised over $2,000 to send local high school students to see the movie “Harriet,” and sent 144 families to the movies via the Single Parent Project.

UPDATE: Movie Scene Queen raised $545 for the Single Parent Project.
