Cancelled - In the Heights at the Silver Screen Drive-in

September 18 8:00 to 10:25 pm

“In the Heights”, sings and dances into the Silver Screen Drive-in on Saturday, September 18 at 8:00 pm!

“In the Heights” brings the Tony-winning Broadway musical to the screen, fusing Lin-Manuel Miranda’s (“Hamilton”) kinetic music and lyrics with director Jon M. Chu’s (“Crazy Rich Asians”), lively and authentic eye for storytelling to capture a community that is universal in its experience.

In Washington Heights, a vibrant and tight-knit community at the northern tip of Manhattan, a variety of characters yearn to follow their dreams. Usnavi, a bodega owner who looks after the aging Cuban lady next door, pines for the gorgeous girl working in the neighboring beauty salon. He dreams of winning the lottery and escaping to the shores of his native Dominican Republic. Meanwhile, his childhood friend Nina has returned to the neighborhood from her first year at college with surprising news for her parents, who have spent their life savings on building a better life for their daughter. 

A joyous celebration of heritage and community where choreography, songs, and story all come together to offer pure joy in modern movie musical form.
