One of the seminal films of the 1980s, the provocative Do the Right Thing depicts the ultimately tragic tensions swirling around a pizza joint in Brooklyn’s Bed-Stuy neighborhood on a sweltering summer day.

The film became a lightning rod for discussions by the mainstream media about issues of race. The illustrious cast includes Ossie Davis, Ruby Dee, Danny Aiello, John Turturro, Giancarlo Esposito, Robin Harris, Lee, and many more. (120 mins., 35mm)
