Description

MONDAY JULY 1 DOUBLE FEATURE

DO THE RIGHT THING 7:00 30th Anniversary!
The residents of a Bed-Stuy neighborhood are trying to stay cool over a single, punishingly hot day. But the heat is stoking racial and social tensions that threaten to explode. This stunning breakthrough from writer/director/actor Spike Lee asked questions that remain urgent, thirty years later; now, as then, the answers are up to us. Vibrant, colorful, and essential, with a sterling cast including Danny Aiello, Ossie Davis, Ruby Dee, Giancarlo Esposito, Rosie Perez, John Turturro, and Samuel L. Jackson as Mister Señor Love Daddy. (1989, 120 min + 6 min of bonus content, 4K DCP)

+ BOYZ N THE HOOD 9:20>br>
The hot-tempered Tre Styles (Cuba Gooding, Jr.) is sent to live with his father (Larry Fishburne) in South Central Los Angeles. Coming of age among South Central's gangs and drug trade seriously tests Tre's character, and the violence in his community threatens to consume him. The late John Singleton fought tooth and nail to direct his first screenplay, and got Oscar nominations for both. Gooding, Ice Cube, and Nia Long make confident acting debuts; the cast also features Angela Bassett and Morris Chestnut. (1991, 112 min, 35mm)
