City Lights Cinema: Do The Right Thing

Saturday, July 13 @ 3:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Join us for another installment of City Light Cinema featuring a special 35th anniversary screening of Do The Right Thing on 35 mm!

New! Want a chance to meet WABE’s Lois Reitzes and take a photo before the show? Select the meet and greet ticket option to take part in this exclusive opportunity to chat with Lois about the movie and snap a selfie with her.

All guests will enjoy a special pre-show conversation between WABE’s Lois Reitzes and Professor Stephane Dunn, Ph.D. of Morehouse College, the co-founder and first director of the Morehouse Cinema, Television & Emerging Media Studies (CTEMS) department.

Salvatore “Sal” Fragione is the Italian owner of a pizzeria in Brooklyn. A neighborhood local, Buggin’ Out, becomes upset when he sees that the pizzeria’s Wall of Fame exhibits only Italian actors. Buggin’ Out believes a pizzeria in a black neighborhood should showcase black actors, but Sal disagrees. The wall becomes a symbol of racism and hate to Buggin’ Out and to other people in the neighborhood, and tensions rise.
