If Beale Street Could Talk

Based on the novel by James Baldwin, If Beale Street Could Talk is the story of Tish (newcomer Kiki Layne), a newly engaged Harlem woman racing against the clock to prove her lover’s innocence while carrying their first-born child to term. It is a celebration of love told through the story of a young couple and their families trying to bring about justice and the promise of the American dream. Gorgeously directed by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Barry Jenkins (Moonlight) and featuring a lush score by Academy Award-nominated composer Nicholas Britell, If Beale Street Could Talk is, “a work of social realism elevated to poetic heights by the sheer beauty of its voice and the humanism of its spirit.” (Variety)

Tickets: $9 (members), $14 (nonmembers)
