It is the hottest day of the year on a block in Bedford-Stuyvesant; a scorching 24-hours that will change the lives of its residents forever. Salvatore “Sal” Fragione is the Italian owner of a pizzeria in Brooklyn. A neighborhood local, Buggin’ Out (Giancarlo Esposito), becomes upset when he sees that the pizzeria’s Wall of Fame exhibits only Italian actors. The wall soon becomes a symbol of racism and hate to Buggin’ Out and to other people in the neighborhood as tensions rise.

Directed by Spike Lee ‧ R ‧ 1989 ‧ Drama/Comedy ‧ 2h

ABOUT THE CROWN
The Crown at the Carolina, located on the third floor, started its life as the 1927 vaudeville theatre’s original sign shop, churning out iconic posters and ads for early touring shows and movies. After spending the decades that followed as a storage area, the space underwent its first phase of renovation to open to the public as The Crown in September 2013.

Now a high-tech, flexible performance space, The Crown is celebrated for its delicate acoustics, inviting ambiance, intimate setting, as well as its accessibility to the Triad’s performing arts community. Warm, exposed brick walls, high ceilings, and huge lead-paned windows (original to the building) bring the room its natural, historic, up-cycled “cool” factor.
