The Lyric is thrilled to announce: 'Black Lens: Summer Friday Film Series', to occur on the 2nd and 4th Fridays in June & July at 7:00 pm.
The Lyric thanks Toyota Manufacturing for their generous support in making this film series possible.
Continuing in the tradition of the 5 year run of Lyric Summer Film Series prior, Black Lens seeks to celebrate and honor the monumental achievements in black cinema over the years. This celebration dually honors The Lyric's storied legacy as a movie house and roots in the Lexington community.
Our films this year not only recognize celebrated tremendous historical figures like Muhammad Ali or our 44th president Barack Obama, but also the incredible talent of actors such as Denzel Washington, Harry Belafonte, Dorothy Dandridge, and more.
Moving away from the traditional Sunday afternoon screenings of the past 5 years, our series will run on the second and fourth Fridays in June & July at 7:00 pm. In the tradition of the previous film series, these films will still be presented FREE and open for all of the public to enjoy.
