The creator of Hamilton and the director of Crazy Rich Asians invite you to the event of the summer, where the streets are made of music and little dreams become big... In the Heights. Lights up on Washington Heights...The scent of a cafecito caliente hangs in the air just outside of the 181st Street subway stop, where a kaleidoscope of dreams rallies this vibrant and tight-knit community. At the intersection of it all is the likeable, magnetic bodega owner Usnavi (Anthony Ramos), who saves every penny from his daily grind as he hopes, imagines and sings about a better life.

In the Heights fuses Lin-Manuel Miranda’s kinetic music and lyrics with director Jon M. Chu’s lively and authentic eye for storytelling to capture a world very much of its place, but universal in its experience.

Director: Jon M Chu

Cast: Anthony Ramos, Melissa Barrera, Corey Hawkins

''It is a sweet-natured film with Sunny-D optimism and a no-place-like-home ethic.''

Lin Manuel-Miranda’s incredible musical positively bursts out of the big screen in this new adaptation. Filmed on location in New York, this incredible musical spectacular is one of the biggest musical films ever made. It follows Usnavi, owner of a Washington Heights bodega, who hopes to make his dreams come true, one day at a time. This film is for fans of Hamilton, of course, but it also depicts a necessary, human story that speaks to everyone. Despite being about the struggle and joy of living in Washington Heights, it has connected with audiences all over the world.
