Free movies have returned to the dazzling United Palace theater in Washington Heights after a nearly two-year absence, and the next screening is almost here.


"Black Panther" is the fifth in a series of six films scheduled at this year's "Movies at the United Palace"—all of them chosen by fans and hosted by actor Lin-Manuel Miranda at the landmarked venue.


The show will take place on Sunday, September 18 at 1pm, followed by a talk with Miranda and Danai Gurira, who played General Okoye. Free tickets can be reserved starting Monday, September 12 at 9am.

The series kicked off in March with "All About Eve," followed by "The Greatest Showman" in April, "Do the Right Thing" in May, and "Raiders of the Lost Ark" in June (special guests included Bebe Neuwirth and Laura Benanti, Hugh Jackman, Spike Lee, and Steven Spielberg respectively).


The last movie of the year is "Coco," scheduled for October 16.

Built in 1930, the United Palace was one of five Loew’s “Wonder Theatres" and includes a 3,000-plus-seat auditorium.
