The Apollo Documentary: Advance Screening

Friday, October 4, 2019
7:00 PM

In advance of the HBO premiere in November, the Apollo Theater hosts a community screening of the HBO documentary, The Apollo, directed by Academy Award-winning director Roger Ross Williams. The Apollo chronicles the unique history and contemporary legacy of the New York City landmark. This feature-length documentary weaves together rare archival footage, performances, and intimate behind-the-scenes verité from the stage adaptation of Ta-Nehisi Coates’ Between the World and Me, exploring the current struggle for racial justice in America, the role that art plays in that struggle, and the broad range of African American achievement that the Apollo Theater represents.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with members of the creative team.

Doors open at 6PM. Tickets not picked up from the box office by 6:30pm on the day of the event will be released to patrons in the standby line.
