October 19 – 30
It’s the early 1970s, a time of great social upheaval as the struggle for civil rights rages on. Ron Stallworth (John David Washington) becomes the first African-American detective on the Colorado Springs Police Department, but his arrival is greeted with skepticism and open hostility by the department’s rank and file. Undaunted, Stallworth resolves to make a name for himself and a difference in his community. He bravely sets out on a dangerous mission: infiltrate and expose the Ku Klux Klan. Produced by the team behind the Academy-Award winning Get Out, BlacKkKlansman offers an unflinching, true-life examination of race relations in 1970s America that is just as bracingly relevant in today’s tumultuous world.
Dir: Spike Lee / 2018 / US / 135 min
“BlacKkKlansman is one of Spike Lee’s most accomplished films in recent memory, and one of the best films of 2018.” – Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times
“It is an exhilarating, distressing, funny and profound film, with one of the more memorable film scores in years, from composer Terence Blanchard… It’s a Spike Lee joint that is not to be missed.” – Lindsey Bahr, Associated Press
“Spike Lee’s hellraiser about a black cop who infiltrated the KKK in the 1970s is also an incendiary indictment of our current Trump moment and one of the best films of the year. A cinema giant has found his voice again and the power to make it heard.” – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
