The Movie Scene Queen’s real name is Merecedes J. Howze
After years of private movie screenings, Merecedes took the hobby to another level. With over a decade of journalism experience, writing as passion, and an inquisitive love for movies, Merecedes took her unofficial nickname and created a blog. Never to be the stingy one, the Movie Scene Queen uses her social network popularity to share her access to private movie screenings with everyone.
