A special 4k restoration in honor of the film’s 30th anniversary!

Set during one sweltering summer day on a block of Brooklyn’s Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood, the film follows the initially casual interactions among Mookie (Lee), Sal (Danny Aiello), Da Mayor (Ossie Davis), Mother Sister (Ruby Dee), Mister Señor Love Daddy (Samuel L. Jackson), Tina (Rosie Perez), Buggin Out (Giancarlo Esposito) and Pino (John Turturro). But tensions rise along racial fault lines as locals demand a black person’s photo be added to the Italians-only Wall of Fame at Sal’s Pizzeria, and heated, profane confrontations ultimately explode into violence.
