Passing

One week only!

In 1920s New York City, a Black woman finds her world upended when her life becomes intertwined with a former childhood friend who’s passing as white. Their unexpected reunion ignites a mutual obsession that threatens both of their carefully constructed realities. Rebecca Hall makes her directorial debut with this intimate drama of racial identity starring Tessa Thompson and Ruth Negga, based on the novel by Nella Larsen.

Tickets: $10 (members), $15 (nonmembers)
