The CosGala Black Panther Screening
FEBRUARY 16th 2018
To kick the year off, and to introduce the CosGala we threw our first ever pop-Up Screening Event. This screening was for the Iconic Black Panther Theatrical Release. As the CosGala was created by a black woman it was imperative and an honor to screen Black Panther as the CosGala premiere pop- Up screening event.
With an attendance of 92 guests, they patrons enjoyed Black Panther Sketch art provided by Patrick Strange’s personal collection, Photography by Dylan Reynolds and Cosplay. Lots and Lots of Cosplay! It was truly a wonderful sight to see. Below you’ll find pictures of the event and a video will full coverage of the events by New Release Wednesday!
