Two great films just hit theaters.

Limelight goes back to 1980′s NYC nightlife. The film is about an NYC nightclub called Limelight, its owner Peter Gatien, and all the headlines that ensued from the club’s legendary and now infamous parties. Fun fact: Giant Step co-founder Maurice Bernstein was actually one of the original promoters for Michael Alig’s Disco 2000 party at Limelight in 1990, which was what helped raise enough capital to start Giant Step! Catch the trailer above.

For those that recall, we mentioned the Thunder Soul release with Jamie Foxx a couple weeks ago. To refresh, the film documents alumni from Houston’s famed Kashmere High School Stage Band and the 35-year reunion concert they play for their band leader. The beloved band leader, “Prof,” was responsible for breaking down color barriers and turning the school’s jazz band into a “funk powerhouse” to be reckoned with.
