New York- With the anticipation of live events returning to the Tribeca Film Festival, In the Heights movie premiere showcased a sign of normality.
With an increased sign of normal life returning after a global pandemic, there was a sense of unity and excitement with opening night for the Tribeca Festival. This year the coordinators for the festival decided that they were going to split certain screenings into a virtual, as well as live.
The film premiered at the United Palace theater in Washington Heights with scenery from the film serving as the backdrop on the carpet. For the first time ever, the festival’s opening night was screened simultaneously across all five boroughs in multiple open-air venues.
The festival will run June 9-20 and is the first major North American film festival held in person since COVID-19.
