ASU Movies on the Field returns Friday

Bring a blanket, sit on the grass and enjoy your favorite films on the big screen under the stars. Don’t miss the first show on Friday, Sept. 17. Events are free to ASU and the public.
From Lin Manuel-Miranda, the creator of Hamilton, and Jon M. Chu, the director of Crazy Rich Asians, comes the musical movie In The Heights! In Washington Heights, N.Y., the scent of warm coffee hangs in the air just outside of the 181st St. subway stop, where a kaleidoscope of dreams rallies a vibrant and tight-knit community. At the intersection of it all is a likable and magnetic bodega owner who hopes, imagines and sings about a better life.
ASU Clear Bag Policy will be in effect, however blankets and seat cushions are allowed and encouraged. Accessible seating areas will also available. Concessions will be open. No outside food or drink allowed. Learn more about how to register online.
