Join us for this special screening of the acclaimed new documentary film "I Want My Name Back" which tells the fascinating story of hip hop's original break-through artists, The Sugarhill Gang. This captivating and sometimes shocking in depth look at the behind the scenes world of music will be screened in the Paramount Theatre as part of the 10th Anniversary of NJ's own Garden State Film Festival. With the megahit "Rapper's Delight", the film's subjects Wonder Mike and Master Gee became worldwide stars then lost everything including their stage names and band name. The film follows their odyssey to reclaim their identities and legacy in music history.
