The Movies

The Movies were a New York hip-hop/R&B band from the 80s. Not much information is given about them, but they were signed to Blue Chip City Records.
In 1985, the band released their debut single "Future Girl." It's unknown how or if the single made the charts.
A year later, they released the single "Juke Box" which peaked at #88 on Billboard's Hot Black Singles chart, staying on the chart for 5 weeks.
In 1987, the Movies released their late single to date "She Gave Me That Itch/The Love in You" on the Macola Record Co. label.

After that, it seems as if the Movies have faded into obscurity. Nothing much has been heard from them since.

I booked this band in 86 thru 88
i was an agent for Norby Walters
the largest agency at that time
for r&b / funk pop dance bands & artist, i was their agent. Just on the strenght of their live show and 1st single "Futuregirl" which wasn't even being played on many radio stations yet we signed them
as an opening act for our other bands we booked.. "Morris Day S.O.S band Klymaxx Lisa Lisa Cult Jam Alaxander Oneal LL Cool J and other known artist and groups, they we'r a very young band age wise to be so good live, the band was based in cincinnati ohio i think thats where they started.. not sure i do remember the leader of the group guy name Lajuan Morsai the guy i would deal with i think the guitar player. he wrote that 1st single Futuregirl it still sounds good! just listened to it on youtube..
