On August 15, 2018, AABANY was delighted to co-partner with the Forest Hills Asian Association and attend a red carpet screening of the film, “Crazy Rich Asians” at the Cinemart Cinemas in Forest Hills.

Yang Chen, AABANY Executive Director, and Margaret Ling, AABANY Development Director, attended on behalf of AABANY. Margaret spoke at the prescreening social at the Theatre Cafe and introduced the attendees to AABANY and detailed our many efforts to support the Asian American community in New York. Thank you to Edwin Wong, President of Forest Hills Asian Association for inviting us to co-partner. The event was sold out and the film was very well received. There were laughter and smiles from the audience throughout the film. The free soft drinks and popcorn were an added plus to the evening.

“Crazy Rich Asians” has already broken box office records as the first Hollywood film in 25 years to feature an all-Asian cast. AABANY is pleased to be part of the history-making phenomenon that this film represents.

If you saw the film and would like to engage in a free-form discussion about it hosted by our Issues Committee, consider joining us for “Crazy Rich Discussion” on August 29. Registration is open now.
