Horror Noire: A History of Black Horror
A Midtown CinemaAAH! Event
2019 | 83 minutes
Delving into a century of genre films that by turns utilized, caricatured, exploited, sidelined, and finally embraced them, Horror Noire traces the untold history of Black Americans in Hollywood through their connection to the horror genre. Adapting Robin Means Coleman’s seminal book, HORROR NOIRE will present the living and the dead, using new and archival interviews from scholars and creators; the voices who survived the genre’s past trends, to those shaping its future.

Dress in pink and stare longingly at your crush as you celebrate MEAN GIRLS DAY at Midtown Cinema! See the quotable cult film classic from the mind of Tina Fey and starring early 2000's faves Lindsay Lohan, Lizzie Caplan, Rachel McAdams, and Amanda Seyfried.
Teenage Cady Heron (Lindsay Lohan) was educated in Africa by her scientist parents. When her family moves to the suburbs of Illinois, Cady finally gets to experience public school and gets a quick primer on the cruel, tacit laws of popularity that divide her fellow students into tightly knit cliques. She unwittingly finds herself in the good graces of an elite group of cool students dubbed "the Plastics," but Cady soon realizes how her shallow group of new friends earned this nickname.
