My experience opening night viewing @theBlackPanther Movie @Raleighwood Cinema Grill ! #BlackPanther #WakandaForever 

Disclosure: I received complimentary media passes for viewing of first showing at Raleighwood, however opinions about my experience are my own.


In anticipation of BLACK PANTHER coming to theaters it was with great pleasure that I saw Raleighwood, “Triangles’ top rated movie theater, and only truly unique restaurant since 1993” was showing the movie on Thursday 2/15 !! I have heard about this cinema and how you can enjoy great food and drinks while watching hit movies in a casual and comfortable environment. Raleighwood hosted myself and a guest (my friend, fellow blogger Jen of jenoni.com rolled with me) to a girls night out in Raleigh to see a movie we all have been waiting for…BLACK PANTHER!

Why is this movie so important for us to see? Because as African-Americans we rarely, if ever get a chance to see ourselves as a super hero. Marvel Comic has solved that issue with this movie. Without giving away any spoilers, I will say this movie was Ahhh-maaazzzing! From the costumes, to the script, the setting and of course the great acting and action, this is movie that needs to be seen by EVERYONE! I especially loved the representation of powerful women in this film, which showed a great balance of the women leading and serving. SobeSavvy Tip: Stay past the credits (both of them) for movie extras. Just when you think it’s over. It ain’t over! You don’t want to miss what Marvel Studios have planned for BLACK PANTHER!

Synopsis: Marvel Studios’ BLACK PANTHER follows T’Challa who, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king. But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king—and Black Panther—is tested when he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people and their way of life.

BLACK PANTHER arrives TODAY in theatres everywhere on February 16, 2018! If you live in Raleigh, plan to see it at RALEIGHWOOD for a unique movie with dining experience. Get there early and choose from the various seating and table arrangements inside the theater. They serve food, beer and wine to be consumed before and during the feature film. We split an order of their chicken wings and a order of steak fries and it was pretty good! The whole experience was great and I plan to go back to see BLACK PANTHER again for the $5.50 matinee today!! Yep..it was that great !

Have you seen or plan to go see BLACK PANTHER? Share your thoughts below! Thanks for reading! Wakanda Forever!

    I.CAN’T.WAIT!! I’m not into comics, but from the trailer alone this seems to have been very majestically done!…And makes for a great date, a good movie with food and drinks!

      Thanks Laura! I got one of the black female action figures too. As far as I know, that is a first also. So exciting!

  2. EG III says:

    I’m usually up and out right after the first credits so thanks for the tip to stick around. From everything I’ve heard, this is an amazing film!

  3. I’m late to all trending movies so I usually catch them when they’re available on Blu-Ray or streaming. I feel so out of the loop, but I’ll definitely be checking it out in due time. I’m enjoying all the #blackpantheroutfits, lol.

      I saw it with my gf, then with my husband. Im considering taking my 6 yr old or may wait until I can own a copy!

  4. I know the person who made those custom fan posters. They are better than Marvels version actually but this movie was life changing saw it 4x.

  5. Any movie theater that allows food and drink while watching is an ultimate win for me. I LOVED this movie and was so excited to watch it. I plan on taking my kids to watch it too this week. #wakandaforever 🙂
