The Apollo captures the history and legacy of New York City’s legendary Apollo Theater. Featuring interviews with Jamie Foxx, Angela Bassett, Pharrell Williams, Common, Patti LaBelle and Smokey Robinson, The Apollo examines the influence the theater has had on American music and culture for 85 years and the current state of race in America as it follows the creation of a new multimedia adaptation of Ta-Nehisi Coates’ book “Between the World and Me” for the theater’s grand stage.
A dessert reception will follow.
This special screening is offered at no charge. RSVP is required.
