The Wex & South Drive-In: Do the Right Thing (1989)

August 12 @ 8:30 pm

Thursday, August 12: Do the Right Thing (1989)

Doors open at 8 PM, film begins at approx. 8:45 PM

Spike Lee’s modern classic portrays a vibrant, predominantly African American Brooklyn neighborhood on the hottest day of the summer. Against an orchestral score by Bill Lee (Spike’s father) and numerous rap hits including Public Enemy’s original song “Fight the Power,” racial tensions build to a climax that could’ve been ripped from today’s headlines. The filmmaker also stars, leading an illustrious ensemble that includes Danny Aiello, Giancarlo Esposito, Rosie Perez, Samuel L. Jackson, and more. (120 mins., DCP, rated R)

South Drive-In, central Ohio’s only dedicated drive-in cinema, is located at 3050 S. High St. Admission to all screenings in the Wex series is free, but space is limited and on a first come, first served basis. Complete details about the films to screen will be available at wexarts.org. Information about the venue, including COVID-19 protocols in place, is available at drive-inmovies.com.
