A NEW date of Thursday, September 18, is scheduled for the premiere of Jamaican Mafia. The event is slated for Sunrise Multiplex Cinemas in Valley Stream, Queens, New York.
Bobby Clarke, CEO of Irie Jam -- promoters of the New York premiere, said an additional theatre is also reserved at the same venue.
Filmed entirely in New York City last year, Jamaican Mafia is directed by Vafamba Donzo and stars Paul Campbell, whose credits include Dancehall Queen and Third World Cop. Mykal Fax and D'Angel are also listed among the credits.
Originally scheduled for August 27, the premiere was postponed as the producer, who had the only copy of the film, suffered a stroke and had to be rushed to the hospital.
Ticket holders for the original date are expected to get a full refund or issued new tickets.
