BOOMSHAKALAKA!

For its 30th anniversary, the Cinéma Moderne presents the 4K restoration of Spike Lee’s 1989 classic, Do the Right Thing.

On the hottest day of the summer, temperatures and tensions rise in the culturally diverse neighbourhood of Bed-Stuy Brooklyn. Mookie (Spike Lee) and the rest of the residents on the block live in a delicate balance that is pushed to its limits as the day turns to night.

Shot on location in Brooklyn, New York City, Do the Right Thing’s themes of racism, gentrification, police brutality and global warming are just as relevant today, as they were in 1989. Lee’s hilarious yet devastating, ever-evolving classic is a can’t miss in this 4K restoration, AND THAT’S THE TRUTH, RUTH!

Nominated for Best Original Screenplay and Best Supporting actor (Danny Aiello)- Academy Awards 1990
Official Selection – Cannes Film Festival 1989

New 4K restoration for the 30th anniversary of the film

Do the Right Thing was the finest, the most controversial, most discussed and most important film of 1989. – Roger Ebert
