‘Do The Right Thing’: Interactive Screening

This is not your typical, “sit down, shut-up, watch and leave” movie screening, but that’s because “Do the Right Thing” isn’t about sitting down and shutting up — it’s about action. The 1989 Spike Lee film, ostensibly, is about a Brooklyn resident, Buggin Out, who takes issue with a wall of fame in his neighborhood pizzeria that shows only photos of Italian American actors despite the restaurant being located in a black neighborhood. At this showing, you’re invited to “step into the film” with activities, New York-style pizza, discussions and more. The movie starts at 6:15 p.m. RSVP by visiting 1619 Flux’s website. —LEO
