Hollywood Shuffle 

When: Fri., April 29, 7:30 p.m. 2016


Look out, Ambassador Cinemas, there's a new retro film series in town. Raleigh Film Underground, focused on indie and cult movies from the second half of the twentieth century, debuts on Friday, backed by a $1,000 grant from The Awesome Foundation. The series also previews new films by North Carolina directors. "The goal is to provide smart, fun, subversive entertainment and give our local filmmakers a new way to promote their work and connect with their audience," explains series director Emily Alexander. It kicks off with Hollywood Shuffle, Robert Townsend's career-launching 1987 sendup of racial stereotypes in Tinseltown. You can also catch a preview of Christopher Everett's Wilmington on Fire, a new documentary about the "Wilmington Massacre" of 1898, when white Democratic party insurgents ejected the city's black leadership and a mob of white men attacked the only black newspaper in the state. Don't show up at the wrong Trophy (you want the big one on Maywood) or you'll be late, and might not have time to hit the Tan-Durm Indian food truck before RFU's opening credits roll. —Brian Howe
