Cult Films With a Side of Dinner and Drinks

On the last Wednesday of each month, Rivet will be partnering with Pottstown based movie and music distributor MVD to present cult films on our screens and pump the audio through our sound system. At the same time, you can enjoy an inspired food and drink menu that will enhance the films we are screening!

This Month’s Movie: STYLE WARS

The classic hip-hop documentary.

“Anybody who wants to understand what hip hop is all about needs to see a movie called Style Wars.” —KRS-One.

“The Holy Grail of hip-hop movies.” —XLR8R.

When director Tony Silver and co-producer Henry Chalfant delivered the broadcast version of their prize-winning film in 1983, the world received its first full immersion in the phenomenon that had taken over New York City. The urban landscape was physically transformed by graffiti artists who invented a new visual language to express both their individuality and the voice of their community.

In STYLE WARS, New York’s ramshackle subway system is their public playground, battleground, and spectacular artistic canvas. As MC’s, DJ’s and B-boys rock the city with new sounds and new moves, we see street corner breakdance battles turn into performance art.

Interviews on several Sirius XM Hip Hop shows including Sway In the Morning, The All Out Show, DJ Kay Slay, Ed Lover ‘Live’, DJ Premier and more.

About MVD:

MVD Entertainment Group is a full service music and movie distribution firm, exclusively representing thousands of audio and visual products for DVD, Bluray, CD, vinyl, and digital rights, worldwide. MVD also exclusively distributes a growing line of merchandise including limited edition collectibles, tee shirts, and more.

“Serving Artists and Audiences” is MVD’s purpose statement; it represents a commitment to the interests of the musicians, filmmakers, record labels, producers, managers, and every link in the supply chain. The customers are the Audience, from wholesalers, sub-distributors, major retail chains, online retailers, specialists, and independent mom and pop stores, all the way to the consumer.

MVD Entertainment Group was founded in 1986 by Tom Seaman, an industry veteran with prior experience with The Record Hunter, Sam Goody, CBS Retail, and JEM Distribution. Tom, along with his family, Elinor, Eve and Ed, initially focused on music videotapes.

At the turn of the century, with the advent of DVD, MVD built a large catalog of exclusively distributed audiovisual content on DVD’s, with special strength in music concert films, horror movies, documentaries, comedy, cult classics, and much more.

In 2006, at the request of many of MVD’s label partners, MVD entered the audio distribution business. Soon thereafter MVD merged with Big Daddy Music Distribution, and picked up a large catalog of CDs, vinyl and digital audio rights.

MVD stays on the cutting edge of new media with a huge catalog of audio and visual digital rights, and by nurturing its direct relationships with the major digital and VOD platforms. MVD works with a variety of up-and-coming platforms as well and actively pursues new relationships.

Today, MVD is still family owned and operated, and is 100% debt free. With its base operations in Pottstown, PA , MVD runs a 30,000 square foot warehouse and office space with around 30 full-time employees.

MVD continues to look for new and exciting content and sees a bright future in the entertainment business. Serving artists and audiences, the driving principle at MVD, allows us to consider a wide spectrum of opportunities and change with this ever evolving industry.
