DO THE RIGHT THING (Spike Lee, 1989)
Middleton Hall, 1600-1830
With a short introduction by Dr James Zborowski, Senior Lecturer in Film and Television Studies
Spike Lee’s multi-award-winning masterpiece, which celebrates its 30th anniversary this year, uses a story of simmering racial tensions in a Brooklyn neighbourhood to examine the ethics of protest, resistance, and violence.
Following a £9.5 million redevelopment, Middleton Hall re-opened its doors in late 2016 as a 400-seater concert hall. The versatile venue is used for classical music concerts, and with adaptable acoustics, it is also used as a surround-sound cinema and theatre space.
