BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Movie Night: In the Heights

Doors 7:00 / Show 8:00

Join Prospect Park Alliance and BRIC for a free, outdoor screening of In the Heights at the Lena Horne Bandshell. 

In the Heights centers on a variety of characters living in the neighborhood of Washington Heights, on the northern tip of Manhattan. At the center of the show is Usnavi, a bodega owner who looks after the aging Cuban lady next door. He pines for the gorgeous girl working in the neighboring beauty salon and dreams of winning the lottery and escaping to the shores of his native Dominican Republic. Meanwhile, Nina, a childhood friend of Usnavi’s, has returned to the neighborhood from her first year at college with surprising news for her parents, who have spent their life savings on building a better life for their daughter. Ultimately, Usnavi and the residents of the close-knit neighborhood get a dose of what it means to be home.

The film fuses Lin-Manuel Miranda’s kinetic music and lyrics with the director of Crazy Rich Asians, Jon M. Chu’s lively and authentic eye for storytelling to capture a world very much of its place, but universal in its experience.
