HACU partners on a special screening of In the Heights
The Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities and Warner Bros. Pictures have partnered to offer two special early screenings of In the Heights for college students on April 15, 2021. The screenings will be followed by a conversation with Lin-Manuel Miranda, Quiara Alegría-Hudes, Leslie Grace & Corey Hawkins and special appearances by Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona and former First Lady Michelle Obama.
**Note: Both screenings have been filled**
The movie synopsis: Lights up on Washington Heights, a world very much of its place, but universal in its experience, where the streets are made of music and little dreams become big... 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, who saves every penny from his daily grind as he hopes, imagines and sings about a better life.
