Free movies have returned to the dazzling United Palace theater in Washington Heights after a nearly two-year absence, and the last screening of 2022 is almost here.
Pixar's animated "Coco" is the sixth and final film scheduled at this year's "Movies at the United Palace"—all of which were chosen by fans and have been hosted over the last year by actor Lin-Manuel Miranda at the landmarked venue.
The show will take place on Sunday, October 16 at 1pm, followed by a talk with Miranda and Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, the songwriting duo that wrote "Remember Me."
Free tickets can be reserved starting Tuesday, October 11 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, "Raiders of the Lost Ark" in June, and "Black Panther" in September (special guests have included Hugh Jackman, Spike Lee, and Steven Spielberg).
The free screenings, sponsored by the Miranda Family Fund and American Express, also provide a unique opportunity to see the theater's spectacularly decorated interior up-close.
Built in 1930, the United Palace was one of five Loew’s “Wonder Theatres" and includes a 3,000-plus-seat auditorium.
