What's happening now?: The Labor Day Edition
There’s so much going on in our fair city this Labor Day weekend. We want to highlight the places to be seen in!
August 26, 2011-September 5, 2011 Beats, Rhymes, & Life- ATCQ Documentary
Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels of a Tribe Called Quest is a documentary film directed by Michael Rapaport about an influential and groundbreaking hip hop group from New York City. Having released five gold and platinum selling albums within eight years, A Tribe Called Quest was one of the most commercially successful and artistically significant musical groups in recent history, and regarded as iconic pioneers of hip hop. The band’s sudden break-up in 1998 shocked the industry and saddened the band's fans. This amazing film is now playing at the Ridgeway 4; 5853 Ridgeway Center Pkwy. PH: 901-681-2047 Movie Hotline: 901-681-2020.
