Frameline, SF Pride screen ‘In The Heights’

Ballpark film event features adaptation of Tony-winning musical

“In The Heights,” the new film based on Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Tony Award-winning musical, is the inaugural feature for Frameline and San Francisco Pride’s Movie Nights at Oracle Park.

Director Jon M. Chu’s long-awaited film adaptation of the play screens June 11 at the ballpark in the first of two events presented by SF Pride 51 and The Frameline45 San Francisco International LGBTQ+ Film Festival in collaboration with the San Francisco Giants and city and county of San Francisco.

The socially distanced event starts at 6:30 p.m. with in-person and virtual appearances, including SF Pride 2021’s Community Grand Marshals. The movie starts at 8 p.m.

In a statement released May 10, SF Pride officials said that in the absence of a traditional parade and celebration for the second year, SF Pride’s staff and board of directors are “thrilled to welcome the Bay Area’s LGBTQ+ communities for back-to-back evenings of entertainment that centers diversity, uplift and joy.”

The feature slated for June 12 has not yet been announced.

Tickets, on sale now, are $24.99 for general admission in lower box sections; $44.99 for club level, which includes added food and beverage service; and the “On Field Experience” package for $2,500 with deluxe seating, food and beverages for parties up to 12 guests.
