Greenport’s Village Cinema is open during the winter once again! The Winter Film Series, curated by Manhattan Film Institute, runs every Saturday from January 11 through May 9 and showcases award-winning movies and classic cinema for kids and adults.
This week, the acclaimed film for adults is the 1989 film Do The Right Thing. Directed by and starring Spike Lee, this film powerfully chronicles issues of race relations in New York City and how tensions can quickly boil over on the hottest day of the summer. As relevant and provocative today as it was when it was released over 30 years ago, this film is absolutely a must see!
The show begins at 7:00. This showtime also includes a Student Short Film and a Post-Film discussion!
All of the screenings will be presented free of charge this winter, though donations are requested.
