This Eddie Murphy Hit Made Waves in the 80s, and Now, See It for Free

What better way to bid farewell to summer and welcome fall than an evening spent watching a movie under the stars? On Thursday, September 20th, Video Dungeon Theatre presents a free outdoor screening of 1988's Coming to America. This cult classic comedy stars Eddie Murphy, Arsenio Hall, and James Earl Jones.

In Coming to America, Prince Akeem (Eddie Murphy) is the prince of a wealthy African country and wants for nothing, except a wife who will love him in spite of his title. To escape an arranged marriage, Akeem flees to America accompanied by his persnickety sidekick, Semmi (Arsenio Hall), to find his queen. Disguised as a foreign student working in fast food, he romances Lisa (Shari Headley), but struggles with revealing his true identity to her and his marital intentions to his king father (James Earl Jones).

The movie will be presented by Video Dungeon Theatre, a small team of organizers who plan film screening events at public establishments in San Antonio.

This event is free to attend and open to adults aged 21 and over. Drink specials will be available on all Texas beer and spirits, and there will be a kitchen on-site until 1 a.m. Bring your friends and enjoy a classic comedy within the community!

We know you love your home at White Rock Apartments in San Antonio, Texas, but it’s important to stay active and involved in your community. Attending this event is the perfect chance for you to journey outside your comfort zone to meet new people and seek new opportunities.
