Silver Screenings: Do the Right Thing 1989

Sunday, February 16, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm


Members & guests—free. To register, please scroll down or call the Village office at 773.248.8700.

Step out of the cold to see Spike Lee’s portrait of one, hot day in Brooklyn. The plot is simple—just a day in a predominantly African-American neighborhood where everyone visits Sal’s, the local pizzeria, owned by Danny Aiello and run by him and his sons. An ordinary day where no one does the right thing, leading to tragic, inevitable results. If you’ve never seen it, you should. If you’ve seen only parts on tv, see it in its entirety. Both Siskel and Ebert put it at No.1 for 1989; both put it in their top 10 for the 1980s. Also with Rosie Perez, Ruby Dee, Ossie Davis, John Turturro, and Sam Jackson.

Silver Screenings presents films that you probably saw (or should have seen) a few years ago and will enjoy seeing again. The theater accommodates thirty people and it has real theater seats in banked rows and a big screen. A discussion will follow the movie.
