PING PONG PLAYA (Party at the Parkway)
About "Ping Pong Playa" -
An aimless young Chinese-American finds his hoop dreams unexpectedly sidelined when his parents are injured in an accident and he is forced to give ping-pong lessons. Christopher "C-dub" Wang may not be able to sink a lay-up to save his life, yet he longs to realize his lifelong goal of playing in the NBA. Add to this the fact that C-dub still lives at home and will likely never emerge from under the shadow of his successful older brother, Michael, and it's beginning to look like this wannabe pro-athlete is going nowhere fast. C-dub's parents are a pair of former table tennis champs who now own a successful ping-pong supply shop and teach lessons on the side. Much like his parents were back in the day, C-dub's brother Michael is a ping-pong wizard who is championed by the Chinese community for taking top rank in the tournaments year after year. But now, Michael and C-dub's parents have both been injured in a car accident, forcing the ill-equipped -- and extremely reluctant -- family slacker to take over the ping-pong teaching duties.

About Party at the Parkway:
This showing is part of "Party at the Parkway".  Party at the Parkway is a patron planned event where we celebrate one of our patrons (or a group of patrons), replete with a cake and singing, and we open it up the public.  So even if you don't know anything about the group or person, consider coming out to celebrate.

This Party @ the Parkway is for the birthday of Jeanette Jin's lovely daughter. Please come and celebrate her birthday and get to see a great movie to boot!
