Black Gold presents NEW JACK CITY – 35mm!

BLACK GOLD returns to warm up your winter with a 35mm screening of Mario Van Peebles seminal crime flick NEW JACK CITY screening on 35mm!

““Am I my brother’s keeper?” The glowering, gun-toting narcotics tycoon Nino Brown was immortalized by a sensationally malevolent Snipes in this swaggering thriller’s most iconic scene. Offering a sharp critique of rampant Reagan-era capitalism, Van Peebles’ violent Harlem-set showdown pulses with the sounds of New Jack Swing and boasts tremendous supporting turns from director Van Peebles, Ice-T, and a young Chris Rock.”
