Pittsburgh’s ‘Movie Scene Queen,’ Merecedes J. Williams, celebrates seven years in business

by Courier Newsroom

The New Pittsburgh Courier’s film critic, Merecedes J. Williams, will celebrate seven years in business by being a guest bartender at Stanley’s Lounge in Homewood, 7403 Frankstown Ave., on Jan. 22 from 6 to 8 p.m. She will be joined by WAMO 100.1 FM’s Portia Foxx. All tips will directly benefit Williams’ Single Parent Project, an initiative that provides free movies, concessions and transportation to single-parent families, families with incarcerated parents, and foster families.

State Rep. Ed Gainey will present Williams with a state proclamation at Stanley’s Lounge to celebrate the business milestone and the corresponding community-based work.

In 2019, Williams distributed more than 4,200 free movie tickets, raised over $2,000 to send local high school students to see the movie “Harriet,” and sent 144 families to the movies via the Single Parent Project.
