Entrenched in the racial tumult of Los Angeles in the mid-1980s, a group of aspiring rappers banded together to revolutionize the global consumption of hip-hop and popular culture. NWA was born out of racial frustration and the disadvantaged economics of their South Central neighborhood. F. Gary Gray directs this biopic about the rise to stardom for the act that earned the moniker of “The World's Most Dangerous Group,” featuring Ice Cube’s son O'Shea Jackson Jr. playing the role of his father, Corey Hawkins as Dr. Dre, and Jason Mitchell as the late Eazy-E. The January 27 show will be preceded by a collection of 35mm Hip-Hop movie trailers, while January 31 features a live performance by BreakFree Hip Hop!
