Movies Under the Stars: Stonewall Uprising
Wednesday, June 26, 2019
8:30 p.m.–10:30 p.m.
Celebrate Pride with NYC Parks and New York City Mayor's Office of Media and Entertainment!
This screening will be an official event of the first WorldPride in the United States, in conjunction with 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising.
When police raided the Stonewall Inn, a gay bar in New York City on June 28, 1969, the streets erupted into violent protests that lasted for six days. Stonewall Uprising, a film from PBS AMERICAN EXPERIENCE, tells the story of the Stonewall Riots, a major turning point in the modern gay civil rights movement. Filmmakers Kate Davis and David Heilbroner will be in attendance.
This movie is sponsored by NYC Parks, the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment, NYC Pride and WGBH.
