Anchored by a powerful performance from Denzel Washington, Spike Lee's biopic of legendary civil rights leader Malcolm X brings his autobiography to life with an epic sweep and a nuanced message.
Based on The Autobiography of Malcolm X, Spike Lee’s biographical drama follows the legendary revolutionary figure through key periods in his life up to his assassination in 1965. Denzel Washington’s electrifying lead performance earned him his first Best Actor nomination.
In a nod to both the Coolidge's long track record of showcasing innovative, boundary-pushing works of film art as well as the start of construction on our expanded space, the theme of this year’s Big Screen Classics series will be Groundbreaking Films! We look forward to sharing more information about our expansion project throughout the year and hope you will join us for one or more of this year's Big Screen Classics the way they were meant to be seen -- on the big screen!
