Show More

The South Bronx Culture Trail Festival CINEMUSICA CITY! was a two-night celebration of the cultural legacy of historic South Bronx concert halls and movie theaters that offered a look into the future generation of talented Bronx youth.  

 

Along with reanimating long-forgotten South Bronx cinemas and concert halls with larger-than-life projections of vintage footage from music greats such as Tito Puente, La Lupe, Grandmaster Flash and GrandWizzard Theodore, CINEMUSICA CITY! culminated in a night at the movies with Latin Music and Hip Hop films and live performances by BB Bronx and NeNe Ali! 


All South Bronx Culture Trail events are FREE and open to the public.
