Watch Spike Lee's "Do The Right Thing" On the Big Screen

It may be cold as hell outside right now, but in 1989 in Brooklyn it was hot as hell outside. Well, at least on the day that the film Do The Right Thing takes place. This iconic film was created by Spike Lee, and although it wasn't his first film, it was the film that really put his name out there. The film takes place, "on the hottest day of the year on a street in the Bedford-Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn, everyone's hate and bigotry smolders and builds until it explodes into violence." It starred big names like Martin Lawrence, Rosie Perez, Danny Aiello, Ossie Davis, Ruby Dee, Samuel L. Jackson, and Spike Lee himself.

This weekend, you have a chance to see this iconic film on the big screen at The Redford Theatre. The historic theatre will be showing the film on Friday night, February 1st at 8 p.m. If you haven't seen Do The Right Thing before, it is a must seem film. If you have seen it, this is the perfect opportunity to watch it again. Tickets for Friday's showing are only $5 and can be purchased in advance here.

The Redford Theatre is located at 17360 Lahser in Detroit. For more info on this historic theatre and to see a full list of upcoming shows, head to
