2 STORIES BORN IN NEW YORK CITY

Nearly a century ago, a young Gregorio Bustelo settled in East Harlem, New York, with a passion for coffee and a big dream. He eventually made that dream come true by opening his own roaster just a few blocks from Washington Heights.

 

The creator of "Hamilton" and the director of “Crazy Rich Asians” invite you to a cinematic event, where the streets are made of music and little dreams become big...IN THE HEIGHTS.

 

Lights up on Washington Heights, where the scent of a cafecito caliente hangs in the air and a kaleidoscope of dreams rallies this vibrant community. At the intersection of it all is the likeable, magnetic bodega owner Usnavi, who saves every penny from his daily grind as he hopes, imagines and sings about a better life.

¡DALE! WE’RE FAMOUS. CHECK US OUT AT THE PREMIERE.
