The creator of “Hamilton” and the director of “Crazy Rich Asians” invite you to a cinematic event, where the streets are made of music and little dreams become big... “In the Heights.”

Lights up on Washington Heights...The scent of a cafecito caliente hangs in the air just outside of the 181st Street subway stop, where a kaleidoscope of dreams rallies this vibrant and tight-knit community. At the intersection of it all is the likeable, magnetic bodega owner Usnavi (Anthony Ramos), who saves every penny from his daily grind as he hopes, imagines and sings about a better life.

“In the Heights” fuses Lin-Manuel Miranda’s kinetic music and lyrics with director Jon M. Chu’s lively and authentic eye for storytelling to capture a world very much of its place, but universal in its experience.

“In the Heights” stars Anthony Ramos (“A Star is Born,” Broadway’s “Hamilton”), Corey Hawkins (“Straight Outta Compton,” “BlacKkKlansman”), singer/songwriter Leslie Grace, Melissa Barrera (TV’s “Vida”), Olga Merediz (Broadway’s “In the Heights”), Daphne Rubin-Vega (Broadway’s “Rent”), Gregory Diaz IV (Broadway’s “Matilda the Musical”), Stephanie Beatriz (TV’s “Brooklyn Nine-Nine”), Dascha Polanco (TV’s “Orange is the New Black”) and Jimmy Smits (the “Star Wars” films).

Chu directed the film from a screenplay by Quiara Alegría Hudes, based on the musical stage play, music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, book by Quiara Alegría Hudes and concept by Miranda. Miranda, Hudes, Scott Sanders, Anthony Bregman and Mara Jacobs produced the film, with David Nicksay and Kevin McCormick serving as executive producers.

Behind the camera, Chu reunited with his “Crazy Rich Asians” production designer, Nelson Coates, and editor, Myron Kerstein. He also collaborated with director of photography Alice Brooks (TV’s “The Walking Dead”) and costume designer Mitchell Travers (“Eighth Grade”). Original songs by Miranda. Alex Lacamoire (“Fosse/Verdon”) and Bill Sherman (“Sesame Street”) served as executive music producers. The choreography is by Christopher Scott, who previously teamed with Chu on the award-winning “The Legion of Extraordinary Dancers.”
“In the Heights” was filmed in New York, primarily on location in the dynamic community of Washington Heights.

Warner Bros. Pictures presents a 5000 Broadway / Barrio Grrrl! / Likely Story / SGS Pictures Production, A Jon M. Chu Film, “In the Heights.” Slated to open on June 10, 2021 in theaters and on HBO Max, the film will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures. It will be available on HBO Max for 31 days from theatrical release.

“In the Heights” is rated PG-13 for some language and suggestive references.

    I know a LOT of people are saying they cried while watching the movie, but I just couldn't help myself. To see Latinidad represented AND celebrated, to see our stories told with respect and dignity. Omg, I can't even describe what I felt. This film makes my heart so happy ❤️
    If you can watch it in the theater, please do. It's worth it!

    I hate hate hate how much hate this movie is getting because there wasn't enough representation. Yes there should have been more afro Latinos. Lin Manuel miranda apologised. Now people are hoping to see this movie crash and burn because of it and that's upsetting. I'm Puerto Rican and I am a light skin one at that but we too deserve representation. You can be disappointed but also be happy that this film features a mostly Hispanic cast.

    This movie was great but i am confused why they put so many other Latinos in the mix when Washington heights is mainly a Dominican neighborhood. There is no puerto rican or cuban community in Washington heights. The neighborhood is 95% Dominican.

    I read some people said they didn't liked that the main characters were white-skinned latinos, instead of black-skinned, and Miranda apologized for that. I'm not latino, but I'm spanish, does it really matter? If someone could explain me it.

      I’m Mexican, Salvadorian Filipino and Honduran. My boyfriend is Native American, Puerto Rican and Mexican and we cried the entire movie both times watching it. This entire cast looks was so racially ambiguous and as a mixed person I really appreciated that. I grew up always getting asked “what I was”. It was breath taking seeing foods I grew up eating on display like that. It was so colorful and had so much heart. I absolutely love this movie and can’t stop thinking about it

    They said that this picture failed. My take goes beyond not having many Latino-Africanos. Is that while we have many Latinos here in America, we really don’t have many everyday life experiences, tastes in music, food ect in common with other Latinos whose origins vary country to country.

    This movie was actually amazing. I grew up in Washington Heights and they filmed at my childhood pool. Some of the background dancers are people from our actual block. The memories this musical brought make made me have so much nostalgia. They captured our WH perfectly.
