Movie: Blackkklansman W/ Ron Stallworth Live Q&A
August 25, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm$16.24
Meet the real Ron Stallworth – the detective whose unbelievable true story inspired this movie – at this special LIVE Q&A featuring Ron in person with his wife, Patsy. Afterwards, Ron will sign copies of his book BLACK KLANSMAN – available for purchase along with your ticket.
Ron Stallworth (John David Washington, BALLERS) is the Colorado Springs PD’s first African-American detective. Seeking to prove himself, Stallworth sets about taking down the Ku Klux Klan, bringing colleague Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver, STAR WARS) along for the ride. Together, Stallworth and Zimmerman infiltrate and ascend the Klan’s hierarchy, aiming to expose the organization even as it attempts to bring its hateful message to the mainstream.
Based on Stallworth’s incredible autobiography, BLACKKKLANSMAN fiercely and fearlessly takes on the KKK in an unforgettable true story. Legendary filmmaker Spike Lee (DO THE RIGHT THING, MALCOLM X, 25TH HOUR) brings Stallworth’s story to life with all his trademark style, wit, and fire, alongside the producing team behind 2017’s smash-hit GET OUT.
Though set in the 1970s, BLACKKKLANSMAN is a stinging rebuke to the organized racism of today, and one of Lee’s most striking films to date. Examining the propagation and normalization of hate with an intelligent, horrifying, darkly hilarious eye, it’s little wonder it won the prestigious Grand Prix at the Cannes Film Festival.
