Dolemite Is My Name

Sunday, December 22, 2019 - Thursday, January 2, 2020

Academy Award-nominee Eddie Murphy portrays real-life legend Rudy Ray Moore, a comedy and rap pioneer who proved naysayers wrong when his hilarious, obscene, kung-fu fighting alter ego, Dolemite, became a 1970s Blaxploitation phenomenon.

“Eddie Murphy is still insanely, gloriously funny. DOLEMITE fits right in with his best work as a multidimensional comedian.” – USA Today

“Hugely entertaining. A move whose spirit is so big the screen can barely contain it.” – TIME
