I'll be taking an additional day off from blogging as I recuperate from an amazing weekend in New York City. The black gay dollar was in full effect as our community came out in full support of Noah's Arc in five cities across the country.

Arc" grossed $161,302, averaging an astounding $32,260. The film opened in New York (Chelsea), Los Angeles (Sunset 5), Chicago (Century Centre Cinema), Atlanta (Landmark Midtown), and Washington, DC (E Street Cinema). Not only was its average among the best of 2008 (it's just a few $100 behind "Rachel Getting Married"'s fall season benchmark average earlier this mont h), it also is already 2008's highest grossing narrative gay film (beating Regent Releasing's "Shelter," which grossed $142,666 in March), according to Yahoo! Movie News.

Many thanks to all of you who have written me to share your experience(my Blackberry was going off constantly as I was watching the film on Saturday) and to those of you who traveled from far away to witness this amazing moment for our community.

It was a pleasure reuniting with old friends and meeting new ones in New York. Enjoy the pics from my weekend at the movies above and a special video from loldarian.com affiliate Lonnell Williams on location in Chicago below. Be back tomorrow!

I am disappointed that Dallas was not one of the premier cities, but I am hopeful I will see it when it passes through this weekend.

"Any of us Noah fans can and will find something wrong with the realism of the storyline and want the movie to play out the way we see our individual lives. However there are real Wade's, Noah's, Rickie's and the rest of the characters out there and with similar situations as theirs. What the movie did for many of us is cleverly talked about many of our issues and making us laugh at ourselves. Yes, not all of them and they could dragged in more of and make it a two hour movie to satisfy almost everybody. All in all, I think that all Noah Arc's fan came away feeling like they had gotten their money's worth, saw a movie that directly speaks to them and want to see more of them! I can't wait to B-Boy Blues!"
