In the Heights kicks off Tribeca Festival with opening night premiere: See all the photos
The highly anticipated movie-musical made a hometown splash at the 20th edition of the New York City-based festival.
Lights up on In the Heights
A day ahead of its release in theaters and on HBO Max, In the Heights went uptown for an electric premiere as the opening night film of the 20th Tribeca Festival. Held at the United Palace theater in New York's Washington Heights - the same neighborhood where Lin-Manuel Miranda's musical-turned-movie takes place - the premiere event brought out Miranda, director Jon M. Chu, and much of the film's cast, screening the film in front of an excited audience that clapped after nearly every musical number.
