Coming to America (1988)               1h 57m / R / Comedy
3:00pm Sunday, Feb. 19

Prince Akeem (Eddie Murphy) is the prince of a wealthy African country called Zamunda and wants for nothing, except a wife who will love him regardless 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 father the King (James Earl Jones).

Join us before the show for a “Welcome to Zamunda” community marketplace in the lobby, starting at 2:00pm with music, vendors, and cocktail demonstrations by series sponsor Uncle Nearest Premium Whiskey.
