Morris Chestnut and family surprise moviegoers at Baldwin Hills-Crenshaw Plaza in L.A.

*By now, any serious African American moviegoer in particular, has visited his or her neighborhood theater and seen “The Best Man Holiday.”

But here’s the thing, if your neighborhood movie theater was not in the Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza section of Los Angeles, and you didn’t attend the opening night 7:40pm showing of the movie at Rave Cinemas, you missed a HUGE surprise: Actor Morris Chestnut. He made an appearance immediately after the previews for upcoming releases were done rolling.

The setup was very creative too!

An announcement was made that the theater was experiencing technical difficulties, and before the anxious crowd had a chance to get upset, Morris appeared in the flesh.

He said:

“I just wanted to come out and say, thank you [to] everyone that has come out and supported the film. We really put a lot of blood, sweat and tears in this movie, literally. So, I think this movie is going to be something that you guys can all appreciate. I’m pretty sure you are going to like it.”

He also asked his fans to Tweet, Facebook and use their social media to let everyone know about the film.

Morris was accompanied by his daughter Paige and wife Pam, Necole Bitchie reported.. The trio almost caused mayhem as they attempted to exit the theater shortly after he made the brief appearance.
