Reg Lenna To Screen Two Films
Babylon and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will be shown this week at the Reg Lenna Center for The Arts.
Babylon (Wednesday, Jan. 25, at 7 p.m.), is an original epic set in 1920s Los Angeles led by Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie and Diego Calva, with an ensemble cast including Jovan Adepo, Li Jun Li and Jean Smart. A tale of outsized ambition and outrageous excess, it traces the rise and fall of multiple characters during an era of unbridled decadence and depravity in early Hollywood. Babylon is rated R and is 189 minutes long.
In Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, (Saturday, Jan. 28, at 4 p.m.) Queen Ramonda (Angela Bassett), Shuri (Letitia Wright), M’Baku (Winston Duke), Okoye (Danai Gurira) and the Dora Milaje (including Florence Kasumba), fight to protect their nation from intervening world powers in the wake of King T’Challa’s death. As the Wakandans strive to embrace their next chapter, the heroes must band together with the help of War Dog Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o) and Everett Ross (Martin Freeman) and forge a new path for the kingdom of Wakanda. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is rated PG-13 and is 161 minutes long.
