The screening is the first in an expected series of events highlighting classic “throwback” movies with memorable soundtracks. Tuesday’s screening will be followed by Black Thought leading a first-time-ever conversation with the film’s star, Taimak and with El DeBarge, singer of the soundtrack’s biggest hit, “Rhythm of the Night.”

The events will also benefit Black Thought’s charity, GrassROOTS Community Foundation, which provides health and wellness programs for impoverished women and girls.

If you are in New York, you can get tickets to the event, here. For fans unable to attend, the evening will also be a digital event, with live streaming exclusively on blackthought.com. Online viewers will be able to join in by watching the film at home and live tweeting along with the theater audience. All participants will also have a chance to win autographed merchandise from Black Thought, Taimak and El DeBarge.
