Most screenings are currently at 75% capacity. Some screenings will be at 100% and, if so, the page for that event will note that. Concessions will be available. Masks will be required while in all common areas like the lobby or the restrooms, but not in your seats.

In his acclaimed debut as a filmmaker, Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson presents this powerful documentary - part music film, part historical record, created around an epic event that celebrated Black history, culture and fashion. Over the course of six weeks in the summer of 1969, just one hundred miles south of Woodstock, The Harlem Cultural Festival was filmed in Mount Morris Park.  The footage was never seen and largely forgotten - until now. Featuring never-before-seen concert performances by Stevie Wonder, Nina Simone, Sly & the Family Stone, Gladys Knight & the Pips, Mahalia Jackson, B.B. King, The 5th Dimension and more!
