Spike Lee Film Screening
July 20, 2013
Join us at the Strand Theatre next Saturday for a FREE Spike Lee double feature!
Do The Right Thing, 1989: The iconic 1989 production by film director Spike Lee told an unflinching tale of racial and ethnic tensions, as experienced in the multiethnic neighborhood of Bedford-Stuyvesant in Brooklyn, N.Y. — all on the hottest day of the year.
He Got Game, 1998: An American sports-drama film written and directed by Spike Lee. It stars Denzel Washington as Jake Shuttlesworth, a prison inmate convicted for killing his wife. The father of the top-ranked basketball prospect in the country, Jesus Shuttlesworth (played by NBA star Ray Allen), Jake is released on parole for a week by the state's governor in order to persuade his son to play for the governor's alma mater in exchange for a heavily reduced prison sentence.
