Martin Scorsese’s SILENCE tells the story of two Christian missionaries (Andrew Garfield and Adam Driver) who face the ultimate test of faith when they travel to Japan in search of their missing mentor (Liam Neeson) – at a time when Christianity was outlawed and their presence forbidden. The celebrated director’s 28-year journey to bring Shusaku Endo’s 1966 acclaimed novel to life will be in theaters this Christmas.

The Silence screening will be on Tuesday, January 10, 2017 at AMC Waterfront 22, beginning at 7:30 PM.  Please comment below telling us what your ‘passion project’ is for a chance to win two tickets.  

My Passion Project is simple!  I’ve always been an advocate for premier public education.  But, in 2017, I also want to pay it forward through generosity and kindness.  I started with a kind gesture at a concert last night, but the idea is my selflessness and gentle spirit will be infectious and spread widely.

Fences Passes

fences

Now working as a garbage collector in 1950s Pittsburgh, a former baseball star (Denzel Washington) creates tension in his family when he squashes his son’s (Jovan Adepo) dream of playing college football in Fences.

Movie Scene Queen is screening FENCES this Monday, December 19 at 7:30pm in the Waterfront.  Please comment below with your favorite August Wilson play or work.  In 2008, I was taking News II at Duquesne and I created an entire package on August Wilson’s childhood home.  I was outraged that although his house was declared a historic landmark, the marker was laying in the middle of the street.  I worked with City Council and PHLF to get the sign put back in its proper place.  I can keep going on and on, but August Wilson plays are timeless and really grips the reality of Black Pittsburgh (even now).

Hidden Figures Passes

HIDDEN FIGURES is the incredible untold story of Katherine G. Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monáe)—brilliant African-American women working at NASA, who served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, a stunning achievement that restored the nation’s confidence, turned around the Space Race, and galvanized the world.  The visionary trio crossed all gender and race lines to inspire generations to dream big.

Movie Scene Queen will be holding a screening of HIDDEN FIGURES Tuesday, November 22 at 5 PM at AMC Waterfront 22.  Please comment below with your favorite Taraji P. Henson moment.  There’s something about Taraji!  From Baby Boy (2001) to The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008) to Fox’s Empire,  I just love the roles she plays and the energy she uses to portray them.

Much Love,

Movie Scene Queen
