Dolemite - Charles Revival Series - Baltimore

ONE SHOW ONLY!THURSDAY, DECEMBER 5. 9PM “A lasting testament to both rap pioneer / nightclub comic par excellence Rudy Ray Moore and the sun-bleached, smog-covered vistas of ‘70s L.A., Dolemite remains one of blaxploitation’s greatest achievements.When Rudy first took his Chitlin’ Circuit act to the silver screen, few outside black neighborhoods noticed at first -- but 'Dolemite' was a box office smash. His films were cheap, quickly made and technically disastrous, but they have something Hollywood could never buy: a one-of-a-kind underground comedic persona. Here, Rudy plays the greatest pimp of them all; after two years in prison on trumped-up charges, Dolemite’s back on the street and ready to settle scores.” (American Genre Film Archive) TRAILER:https://youtu.be/DebCN7U65vY1975 D’Urville Martin 1.85:1 Color DCP 90 min.Courtesy of Xenon Films, Vinegar Syndrome and the American Genre Film Archive.FALL CALENDAR:https://gallery.mailchimp.com/93c70071a873656af1e5fe543/files/9df5e440-d741-4b1b-b211-8945a162770b/CHARLESFALL2019PICTURESemail.pdfADMISSION $11 (SR $9.50)CHARLES REVIVAL SERIES1711 N CHARLES STREET
