Description

From buzzy award contenders to hidden gems you might have missed during lockdown, catch up on this year's best and brightest docs on our big screen. Members get $5 tickets.

Over the course of six weeks during the summer of 1969, thousands of people flocked to the Harlem Cultural Festival to celebrate Black history, culture, music and fashion. Footage from this epic event, located just one hundred miles south of Woodstock, was never seen and largely forgotten—until now. In his acclaimed debut as a filmmaker, Ahmir "Questlove" Thompson presents a powerful and transporting record of the legendary festival, one that stands as a testament to the healing power of music during times of unrest, both past and present. Includes never-before-seen concert performances by Stevie Wonder, Nina Simone, Sly & the Family Stone, Gladys Knight & the Pips and more.

Tickets: $15 (Members: $5)
