More than 1,500 New Yorkers gathered today in Manhattan to mourn the death of a 32 year-old gay man, who was shot down on Friday just blocks away from the historic Stonewall Inn in an apparent act of anti-gay bias.
Jump the Broom with Noah, Alex, Ricky and Chance on Friday
Noah's Arc: Jumping the Broom hits select theaters Friday, October 24, but if you're in the Washington, DC area, you can attend a very special private screening this week, sponsored by GLAAD, the National Black Justice Coalition and DC Black Pride.
For only $20, you can obtain a General Admission ticket.
But $30 will grant you a VIP ticket, which ensures preferred seating at the theater, with a reception to follow. (Great deal, huh?)
The movie starts at 5:45pm, with a Q&A with very special guests right after.
But what's the film about?
All your favorite characters are back but this time, there's a big wedding to plan! Noah, Alex, Ricky, Chance and their significant others travel to Martha's Vineyard for a weekend wedding getaway. Drama ensues as one by one, their relationships start to crack under the pressure of closer examination.
Newly successful screenwriter Noah looks to his friends for advice as he prepares to move his relationship to a more serious level while struggling to keep his first studio movie alive. But the friends are of little help as they juggle their own issues. Elder statesmen Chance and Eddie attempt to scratch their seven-year itch but worry their marriage has permanently lost its spark. And playboy Ricky flaunts his barely legal college student fling in the face of his monogamous friends but hides a surprising secret that threatens to rock the house. Add to the mix Alex's crazy-making wedding prep, a closeted superstar rapper, a high-maintenance studio exec, and a surprise visitor and you've got the makings of a hilarious and poignant romantic comedy.
