25th Anniversary Reunion/Screening Scheduled for June

It’s the original hip-hop party movie, the forefather to this summer’s potential breakout hit Dope. And since it’s officially 25 years old now, it’s time to celebrate it with, what else, a party.

Released in March 1990, House Party jumpstarted the longstanding union between rap culture and widely released feature films, turning its MC/actor lead Kid ‘n’ Play (Christopher “Kid” Reid and Christopher “Play” Martin) into certified movie stars and household names. Unlike most other hip-hop movies from the ’90s, which favored gritty and dark realism over lighthearted stories, director Reginald Hudlin’s comedy classic broke the mold and presented the rap generation—which, at the time, was more on the fringe than commercially omnipresent—as fun-loving, everyday teenagers. House Party was as groundbreaking as it was joyously entertaining.

To honor the film’s legacy, the Museum of the Moving Image will host a special 25th screening on Friday, June 26, at 7:00 p.m., with co-stars Full Force (Bow Legged Lou, Paul Anthony and B Fine) in attendance for a post-screening Q&A with House Party producer Warrington Hudlin.
