It’s been 30 years since it’s release but Spike Lee’s masterpiece still rings true today. We’re excited to see The Belcourt and Slim & Husky’s Pizza Beeria team up to present this film, Wed, Feb 6 at 8:15pm (Doors at 8pm)!
Join us for Slim & Husky’s pizza and the movie that lost to DRIVING MISS DAISY for Best Picture of 1989.
DO THE RIGHT THING’s exploration of racial tensions is, unfortunately, always timely. Set in the Bedford-Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn, what begins as an uproarious comedy evolves into a provocative, disquieting drama as director Spike Lee chronicles a sweltering day in a largely Black neighborhood—and the trivial events that explode into violence and tragedy.
Spike Lee’s rousing film heralded the arrival of a new voice. On the 30th anniversary of its release, DO THE RIGHT THING is still holding up a mirror to our society, and challenges all of us to see ourselves in one another. And it still makes us laugh.
Post-screening discussion on community building and youth empowerment with musical artist Tim Gent; educator, artist and consultant Melissa Gordon; community organizer Gicola Lane; and artist and neighborhood curator Thaxton Waters; moderated by artist advocate Brian Sexton.
