TIME AGAIN TO KICK IT WITH LOCAL HOST KAT AS BLACK CINEMA NIGHT RETURNS!

Lots of guys have second thoughts about marriage. Three hours before his wedding, Roland (Taye Diggs) is having third, fourth and fifth thoughts. Good thing he's got best buddies Slim (Richard T. Jones) and Mike (Omar Epps) around to help sort those feelings out—and to remember their coming-of-age days in "The Wood" (Inglewood, California). From the big dance to first love, the rites of passage that are part of everyone’s growing up are winningly chronicled in this unforgettable tale of laughs and friendship that's set to the most memorable musical grooves of the '80s.

"An across-the-board delight featuring a spot-on ensemble cast that treats the most awkward and embarrassing moments in the rites of passage with affectionate hilarity." - Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times

"A charmer, a heartfelt memoir full of the buoyant good spirits and free-wheeling fun that, say, American Pie never had." - Margaret A. McGurk, Cincinnati Enquirer
