Eve After Dark made its world premiere at The PAN African Film Festival 2023 on February 17 at 8:30pm (Cinemark Baldwin Hills)

Concept: A documentary Film about the first Hip Hop club on the West Coast and the home to the World Class Wreckin Cru.

Summary: The "Eve After Dark" documentary chronicles the humble 1979 beginnings of the landmark Los Angeles hot spot to its Super Bowl LVI half-time show recognition. Told through storytelling of owner Alonzo Williams, the DJs, artists and comedians who launched or elevated their careers at the club, the film is a candid behind-the-scenes look at the first West Coast’s hip hop club. 

At the height of its prominence "Eve After Dark" was home to the World Class Wrecking Cru, founded by Williams and featuring Dr. Dre and DJ Yella.  Comedians D. L. Hughley, Chris Tucker, Robin Harris and Anthony “AJ” Johnson were also regular performers. East Coast acts Run DMC and Curtis Blow booked their first Los Angeles appearances at the venue. 

The story of "Eve After Dark" is a cinematic exploration of the prominent social issues facing the African American community in the 1980s, the circumstances that led to the club’s closing and the enduring creativity and talent that survives in hip hop culture to this day.
