Hilarious, sweet, and sharp, COMING TO AMERICA is Eddie Murphy’s funniest film. African prince Akeem is on a journey across the world to find a queen. What better place to look than Queens, New York? Akeem wants to live like the common people of queens do, but his faithful servant prefers the luxuries of palace life. Will they find a woman who wants Akeem for love not his wealth?
Disguised as a janitor he’ll have to work twice as hard to earn the heart of a queen, and when his father, the king, arrives in New York to find his wayward son, things will get even harder! Jump into our free photobooth for a portrait, picnic at sunset, dance with DJ Questlove, then see Eddie Murphys comedy classic under the stars!
