HACKENSACK, N.J. -- After visiting Foschini Park on Halloween for what is promised to be a delightfully spooky display from the Recreation and Art Departments from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., city residents are encouraged to return to the parking lot for a drive-in Movie Under the Stars, showing of "Black Panther" screened by the New Hope Baptist Church in Hackensack at 6 p.m.
The ninth highest-grossing film of all time stars the late great Chadwick Boseman as the title role.
It's been two months since the world lost Boseman, who also starred in 2018's Avengers: Endgame and won the NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Actor in a Motion Picture, passed away at only 43 on August 28 from cancer. But his blazing legacy lives on in cinema. In "Black Panther," the box office smash -- directed by Ryan Coogler and stars Lupita Nyong'o, Angela Bassett, Michael B. Jordan and Forest Whitaker, among others -- Boseman, who plays T'Challa, fights to retain his status as crowned king of Wakanda when he faces opposition from Killmonger who plans for a global revolution. "Black Panther" is the highest grossing film by a black director. In 2019, it won three Academy Awards for Best Costume Design, Best Original Score, and Best Production Design.
Foschini Park is located at 278 River Street in Hackensack. Space is limited. Social distancing will be enforced.
