In a collaboration between Frameline, host of the annual LGBTQ International Film Festival, the San Francisco Giants and SF Pride, the first-ever Pride Movie Nights will welcome film fans to an outdoor screening (June 11) of the new film adaptation of Lin-Manuel Miranda's Tony-winning musical "In the Heights," plus live acts and an additional June 12 film to be revealed.

Each night starts at 6:30pm with in-person and virtual appearances, plus food and drinks available for purchase. Feature films screen at 8pm.

John M. Chu's adaptation of the vibrant musical, filmed on location in Washington Heights, is already getting rave reviews. Through a dazzling series of musical numbers, it tells the story of Usnavi (Anthony Ramos) and he and his friends and family as they fight for their hopes while under threat from deportation. The film includes numerous dance scenes set in New York City streets, and even in a swimming pool.

Tickets range from $24.99 General Admission (Lower Box Sections 101-135), $44.99 Club Level, and the luxury On-Field Experience ($2,500) for up to 12 guests. The package includes soft seating a snack and adult beverage, menu items for all preferences (vegan, gluten-free, vegetarian).
