Showtime, along with Mass Appeal, will debut an immersive Wu-Tang Clan tribute in New York City at Dolby Soho from May 16-19 in honor of the upcoming docuseries WU-TANG CLAN: OF MICS AND MEN. As the group marks the 25th anniversary of its breakout debut album Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), the “WU-SEUM” will feature experiential installations highlighting their fascinating journey from the projects to international superstardom. The four-part limited docuseries from filmmaker Sacha Jenkins (BURN MOTHERF*CKER, BURN!) will premiere on SHOWTIME on Friday, May 10 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
The “WU-SEUM” at Dolby Soho is the only place fans can experience interactive Wu-Tang Clan music and clips from the SHOWTIME docuseries mastered in Dolby technologies. There will also be areas themed to pivotal moments in the Wu-Tang Clan’s story, such as RZA’s basement (where the group first formed) and a tribute to the late Wu-Tang member, Ol’ Dirty Bastard. Dolby Vision enhances images through increased contrast and brightness in color, while Dolby Atmos takes music to a three-dimensional space. Located at 477 Broadway, Dolby Soho is a newly opened space where science meets art and technology meets imagination. The “WU-SEUM” exhibit will be open from Thursday, May 16 through Sunday, May 19 from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. For more information, visit https://soho.dolby.com.
WU-TANG CLAN: OF MICS AND MEN follows the founding members – RZA, GZA, Ol’ Dirty Bastard, Inspectah Deck, Raekwon the Chef, U-God, Ghostface Killah, Method Man, Masta Killa and Cappadonna – many of whom were childhood friends in the hardscrabble world of the ’70s and ’80s Staten Island and Brooklyn. It’s a look back on their careers, combining intimate and reflective interviews from each of the nine living members with never-before-seen archival footage and performances. Their ingenuity and entrepreneurial spirit brought them together to overcome the poverty, violence, and oppression of their neighborhoods.
