Presented as part of the St. Louis International Film Festival and the Henry Hampton Film Series.

Helmed by Oscar- and Emmy-winning director Roger Ross Williams, "The Apollo" chronicles the unique history and contemporary legacy of the New York City’s landmark Apollo Theater. The documentary weaves together archival footage, music, comedy and dance performances; behind-the-scenes vérité footage of the team that makes the theater run; and interviews with such artists as Patti LaBelle, Pharrell Williams, Smokey Robinson and Jamie Foxx. "The Apollo" not only covers the rich history of the storied performance space over its 85 years but also follows a new production of Ta-Nehisi Coates’ "Between the World and Me" as it comes to the theater’s grand stage.

Free and open to all.
