Gather 'round film lovers for ARRAY's special tribute to the extraordinary screen star Mr. Sidney Poitier. We're opening the doors of Amanda Cinema to feature two of Mr. Poitier's beautiful classic works, PARIS BLUES and NO WAY OUT. In conjunction with this one-day double feature showing, our ARRAY 101 initiative will debut the newest learning companion for the three-part docu-series THEY’VE GOTTA HAVE US. Engaging audiences with interactive discussions, this event goes beyond the screen to prompt discussions about Mr. Poitier's undeniable legacy as an artist and activist.


In a potent collision of race, romance and jazz, PARIS BLUES chronicles the passionate relationship of two couples embarking on intellectual and artistic adventures in turbulent times.


Please note: Masks and proof of full vaccination plus booster will be required at check-in in order to access this event.
