The Apollo, a documentary about Harlem’s legendary star-making theater, will premiere as part of the 2019 Tribeca Film Festival.
Fittingly, The Apollo will have its debut screening at the Apollo Theater on April 24th as part of the film festival’s opening night festivities, with additional screenings planned before the feature-length film comes to HBO later in the year.
The Apollo “weaves together archival footage, music, comedy and dance performances, and behind-the-scenes verité with the team that makes the theater run,” the Tribeca Film Festival said. The documentary also features new interviews with artists like Pharrell Williams, Smokey Robinson, Patti LaBelle and Jamie Foxx. Read more from Rolling Stone.
