Clarksville, TN – Relive the original cult hit featuring Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall in unforgettable cameo roles! Join us at the Roxy Regional Theatre as we get Back to the Movies with the comedy classic “Coming To America” Friday, June 4th, 2021 at 7:00pm.
Prince Akeem (Eddie Murphy) is the prince of a wealthy African country and wants for nothing, except a wife who will love him in spite of his title. To escape an arranged marriage, Akeem flees to America, accompanied by his persnickety sidekick Semmi (Arsenio Hall), to find his queen. Disguised as a foreign student working in fast food, he romances Lisa (Shari Headley), but struggles with revealing his true identity to her and his marital intentions to his king father (James Earl Jones).
