We still got some time till the theatrical release of Lena Waithe’s highly-anticipated film Queen & Slim, but a select few got to see the movie early. Last week, two special screenings of the movie were held from coast to coast with plenty of star power on hand to get an advanced look at the film.

On Thursday, October 10, during Culture Con week, a special screening hosted by The Read’s Kid Fury and Crissle in Brooklyn at Brooklyn Academy of Music’s (BAM) Rose Cinemas. Big names in the building to watch the movie included rapper Fabolous, actor/comedian Jerrod Carmichael as the film’s writer and director, Lena Waithe, and Melina Matsoukas.
