Popcorn Nights & O Cinema are proud to present the 25th Anniversary of HOUSE PARTY, starring Kid ‘n Play.
Writer/ director Reginald Hudlin’s HOUSE PARTY has spawned four sequels since its’ release 25 years ago. Even though “House Party II” is definitely enjoyable, none of the follow-ups can compare to the dopeness of the 1990 original. 80’s-90’s hip-hop has always been my music of choice and. Although Run DMC and The Fat Boys popped up on the silver screen first, Kid ‘n Play were hip-hop’s first true movie stars. Since I love classic hip-hop and I love movies, it was only natural that Popcorn Nights would present a very special screening of this funky-fresh-funny-film. Welcome to the House Party!
House Party is a 1990 American comedy film released by New Line Cinema. It stars Kid and Play of the popular hip hop duo Kid ‘n Play, and also stars Paul Anthony, Bow-Legged Lou, and B-Fine from Full Force, and Robin Harris (who died of a heart attack nine days after House Party was released).
