It's time to bring Black movies back to the big screen! At SouledOut Cinema, you'll enjoy classic Black films from the 80s, 90s and 00s at a movie theater in a city near you.
Get ready for movies like Boomerang, Waiting to Exhale, Coming to America, Soul Food, Bebe's Kids, The Players Club and Friday. The movies that will make you "ease on down" and ask "what's love got to do with it?" The actual film titles for each screening will be announced when tickets go on sale. Come cheer, laugh or cry along with your fellow moviegoers. Quote your favorite films and share the experience on social media while you watch.
Popcorn and soda are cool but SouledOut Cinema is taking it to the next level. We're working with local caterers to bring you real food like jerk wings, mac and cheese, pound cake, brisket, tostones, gumbo and more. The good stuff.
With your help, SouledOut Cinema will make its way to Atlanta, Baltimore, Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, Memphis, Miami, New Orleans, NYC, Oakland, Philly and more.
SouledOut Cinema will be an experience you won't find anywhere else.
The biggest expenditures required to launch a successful SouledOut Cinema event are securing a venue and obtaining the license to screen films. We are partnering with movie theaters and auditoriums across the country to provide a comfortable space to watch the films you love. Theater rentals cost several thousands of dollars a day to rent. Your donation will allow us to cover these costs, expand the size of theaters and add more cities to the roster.
In addition, movie studios require a license to show copyrighted films in a public space. The great news is you'll be able to help us decide which movies to show. We'll have polls before every screening to determine what you want to see most. Other costs for running an SOC event include providing concessions, venue insurance and hiring staff.
By donating, you can have your name shown in the credits before each movie screening, get access to pre-sale tickets or a lifetime pass to any SOC showing or even a trip to Los Angeles for a VIP movie studio tour. Tickets will be available exclusively through Kickstarter until the show dates are announced.
Also, be sure to check out the swag! Share your love for your favorite movie with apparel you won't find anywhere else. You'll get a discount over the online store with your contribution.

Risks and challenges
The challenges of executing SouledOut Cinema will be the large number of venues in which events will be held. Because SOC will be a multi-city tour there will be a significant effort required to launch in all 12 cities.
We will face this challenge by growing our staff exponentially from the start of the first set of screenings. The funding for future SOC events will be allocated from the revenue of previous screenings. This will aid in making sure the rollout of SouledOut Cinema is a continuous process.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
