Press Release: Movie Scene Queen Receives City Proclamation Alongside Pittsburgh’s Leading Ladies

Pittsburgh, PA May 8, 2019- Councilman Reverend Ricky Burgess will present a proclamation to declare Tuesday, May 14, 2019, as “Movie Scene Queen Day” in the City of Pittsburgh.

Movie Scene Queen (MSQ), an interactive entertainment blog for free movies and music, recently celebrated six years in business, hosting 215 advanced movie screenings, and distributing more than 50,000 free movie tickets to Pittsburgh residents.

Movie Scene Queen is calling on 100 queens to gather at the City-County Building at 10 AM to accept the proclamation. In celebration of women empowerment, one of Movie Scene Queen’s core values, Pittsburgh’s Leading Ladies are asked to stand beside founding owner Merecedes J. Williams as City Hall turns in to a gallery of accomplished female trailblazers.

“This day is more than glitz and glamour, but the celebration of women in business and their commitment to making Pittsburgh a better place,” said Merecedes J. Williams, founding owner of Movie Scene Queen. “Movie Scene Queen provides a platform in community service, a voice for the unheard, and access to entertainment for all.”

Later that day, City Council, Mayor Bill Peduto, and proclamation attendees are invited to a complimentary movie screening to commemorate the day. An advance screening of Universal’s A Dog’s Journey will be held at AMC Waterfront 22 at 7 PM. Starring Dennis Quad, A Dog’s Journey is about a dog who finds the meaning of his own existence through the lives of the humans he meets.

This April, meet Mr. Link: 8 feet tall, 630 lbs, and covered in fur, but don’t let his appearance fool you… he is funny, sweet, and adorably literal, making him the world’s most lovable legend at the heart of Missing Link, the globe-trotting family adventure from LAIKA. Tired of living a solitary life in the Pacific Northwest, Mr. Link recruits fearless explorer Sir Lionel Frost to guide him on a journey to find his long-lost relatives in the fabled valley of Shangri-La.

Little Passes

Girls Trip’s Regina Hall and Black-ish’s Marsai Martin both star as Jordan Sanders — Hall as the take-no-prisoners tech mogul adult version of Jordan and Martin as the 13-year-old version of her who wakes up in her adult self’s penthouse just before a do-or-die presentation.

Insecure’s Issa Rae plays Jordan’s long-suffering assistant April, the only one in on the secret that her daily tormentor is now trapped in an awkward tween body just as everything is on the line. Little is an irreverent new comedy about the price of success, the power of sisterhood and having a second chance to grow up — and glow up — right.

Little

Here’s your chance to snag two tickets to the April 9th screening of Little. Comment below with your favorite Marsai Martin moment. I absolutely love her character, Diane, on black-ish. My favorite moment is when Diane argues with Charlie.  Classic!

Muting R. Kelly is the only choice, says the Courier’s Merecedes J. Williams

One of R&B’s biggest stars is under fire after a damaging documentary sparked off the new year. R. Kelly has released 12 albums, sold over 75 million records, and earned three Grammys. We’ve all been to a gathering where his hit song, “Step in the Name of Love” was on the playlist, and “I Believe I Can Fly” was a moment of inspiration. But, even in the midst of all that success, seven women came forward in Lifetime’s heartbreaking six-part docuseries, “Surviving R. Kelly.”

“Surviving R. Kelly” is a never-ending horror show. It seems like there was not enough tissue for the women who reminisced on the real-life nightmares they underwent at the hands of the “Bump ‘n Grind” singer.

The nail in the coffin for me was the number of people who turned a blind eye to pedophilia, abuse, and human trafficking. R. Kelly is a monster, and it is time to silence R. Kelly indefinitely.

We need to not only “Mute R. Kelly” (#MuteRKelly is a nationwide movement), but we must strip him of every civil liberty and financial resource. Hurting his pockets and livelihood is the only way to stop a vicious predator from destroying any more lives. We need to stop buying his records and purchasing concert tickets.

Celebrities with power and influence, specifically those who have worked with R. Kelly in the past, need to denounce him as well. Similar to John Legend, who was part of the docuseries, they should publicly express their concern about his predatory behavior and refuse to work with him on any level.

The Upside Passes

THE UPSIDE is director Neil Burger’s heartfelt comedy about a recently paroled ex-convict (Kevin Hart) who strikes up an unlikely friendship with a paralyzed billionaire (Bryan Cranston).

Movie Scene Queen has your opportunity to catch a special screening of The Upside on Wednesday, January 9 in the Waterfront.  For tickets, please comment below with your favorite Kevin Hart moment.  My favorite Kevin Hart moment is during one of his early stand-ups when he got into an argument with his wife and she told everybody that he pees in the bed.  His response, “That’s Mountain Dew!”  I die every single time.

Much Love,

Movie Scene Queen
