    Via Twitter, Gay announced she was holding a screening, however the tweet has since been deleted.

    "I bought a screening of Queen & Slim at the Baldwin Hills Cinemark on 11/27 at 7 :30. in LA. You're invited."

  7. Written by Lena Waithe and directed by Melina Matsoukas, Queen & Slim is based on an original idea from bestselling author James Frey, which depicts a first date gone wrong after a couple defends themselves against a police officer. The pair end up going on the run after and the rest had fans on the edge of their seats.

    Here are just some of the reactions from  social media:
