One quiet voice can ignite a revolution. Forest Whitaker leads an all-star cast as a White House butler who serves eight American presidents over three decades and finds his personal life deeply affected by the sweeping social changes — from the civil rights movement to Vietnam and beyond — he witnesses from his prestigious job. Also featuring Oprah Winfrey, Terrence Howard, Cuba Gooding, Jr., Robin Williams and John Cusack, among others.
The Princess and the Frog
June 19th at 1:30pm
Hardworking and ambitious, Tiana (Anika Noni Rose) dreams of one day opening the finest restaurant in New Orleans. Her dream takes a slight detour when she meets Prince Naveen (Bruno Campos), who has been turned into an amphibian. Mistaking her for a princess and hoping to break the spell, Naveen plants a kiss on poor Tiana — thereby turning her into a frog as well. The pair hop along on an adventure through the bayous to seek the help of a powerful voodoo priestess to restore their true forms.
Coming to America
June 19th at 3:30pm
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).
The Color Purple
June 19th at 6:00pm
Academy Award winner Whoopi Goldberg, Danny Glover, and Oprah Winfrey star in director Steven Spielberg’s adaptation of Alice Walker’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel. From 1909 to 1949, Celie, a Southern Black woman, gradually gains self-respect as she strives to educate herself and to find love — despite an abusive spouse and a society biased against her race and her sex.
