Though many theaters across the U.S. are still closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Ava DuVernay is making sure Angelenos can take a safe (and free) trip to the movies.

For a special two-night pop-up event, DuVernay’s non-profit cinema and social justice organization ARRAY Alliance will present “Selena” and “Purple Rain” on a 40-foot screen in Downtown Los Angeles.

“Selena,” which celebrates the life and tragic death of singer Selena Quintanilla and earned Jennifer Lopez a Golden Globe nomination, will screen on Friday, Aug. 14. “Purple Rain,” which marked Prince’s big-screen debut before going on to win an Oscar for best original score, is featured on Saturday, Aug. 15.
