Actresses Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spensor, and singer Janelle Monae are kicking off 2017 with a full dose of Melanin Magic in the new FOX film Hidden Figures hitting theaters Friday, January 6th!  

HIDDEN FIGURES is the incredible untold story of Katherine 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.

In scouring online for show dates and times, we were highly disappointed to learn that only a few theaters are offering an advance screening of the film on Thursday, January 5th, but thereafter only 2 theaters in Charlotte, NC will air the film; AMC Carolina Pavilion 22 and AMC Concord Mills 24.

Thursday - January 5th (Advance Screening)


For those of you interested, we're organizing a group movie date for Friday, January 6th to go out and support this great film.  We will meet at the AMC Concord Mills 24 location for their 10:30pm showing.  If we can organize for enough of us to attend, we can get a group rate on tickets!  Let's show up in great numbers ladies!

Friday - January 6th (Release Date)

Melanin Magic with Hidden Figures

Queen of the runway, Tyra Banks, is relaunching her hit series, America's Next Top Model, and this time, she's tapping into the talents and following of pop sensation, Rita Ora, as the new host, and curvy model, Ashley Graham.  The newly revamped ANTM, which airs on Monday, December 12th at 10/9c, will still feature stunning hopefuls looking to claim the title of America's Next Top Model, which will hopefully catapult them into stardom.

Will you tune in to the phenom that took all of us hostage with it's initial debut in 2003?

Judges: Drew Elliott, Rita Ora, Law Roach, Ashley Graham
