Movies in the Garden: In the Heights
Movies in the Garden is back this spring in RLT’s Stephenson Amphitheatre! Get excited for RLT’s upcoming production of In the Heights by joining us April 7 for an outdoor screening of the 2021 movie adaptation!
In the Heights (2021)
Start time: 8:00 PM
Runtime: 2h, 23min
In Washington Heights, N.Y., the scent of warm coffee hangs in the air just outside of the 181st St. subway stop, where a kaleidoscope of dreams rallies a vibrant and tight-knit community. At the intersection of it all is a likable and magnetic bodega owner who hopes, imagines and sings about a better life. Based on the stage musical of the same name by Quiara Alegría Hudes and Lin-Manuel Miranda.
The movie will be screened outside to an audience of up to 350 guests in the Stephenson Amphitheatre. Tickets are general admission and sold at pay-what-you-can pricing. A ticket is required for all patrons, regardless of age. Masks are not required outside but do need to be worn indoors while visiting the bathroom, etc. Please click here to read more about RLT’s COVID-19 safety procedures.
Come hungry because Berto’s Chimis will be bringing flavors of the Dominican Republic to RLT from 6:30-9:00.
Additionally, Jones Lemonade Slushys will be serving cold frozen lemonade at the event!
Outside picnics and non-alcoholic drinks are welcome! Please see the detailed rules below regarding what can be brought in.
RLT is proud to partner with El Pueblo for our Movies in the Garden screening of In the Heights. Founded in 1995, El Pueblo’s mission is to build collective power through leadership development, organizing, and direct action so that the Latin American community and other marginalized communities control our own stories and destinies. They focus on policy change, civic engagement, youth and adult leadership, and cultural celebration and expression. Due to the pandemic, El Pueblo shifted it’s work to address immediate community needs with a Mutual Aid Fund, food distribution, and COVID-19 testing and vaccination efforts. They recently launched a Community Action ID Program in order to provide undocumented community members a form of identification they can use in Wake County. To learn more about their work, visit ElPueblo.org and follow them on social media.
Additional thanks to North State Bank.
