The creator of “Hamilton” and the director of “Crazy Rich Asians” invite you to a cinematic event, where the streets are made of music and little dreams become big... “In the Heights.”

Lights up on Washington Heights...The scent of a cafecito caliente hangs in the air just outside of the 181st Street subway stop, where a kaleidoscope of dreams rallies this vibrant and tight-knit community. At the intersection of it all is the likeable, magnetic bodega owner Usnavi (Anthony Ramos), who saves every penny from his daily grind as he hopes, imagines and sings about a better life.

“In the Heights” fuses Lin-Manuel Miranda’s kinetic music and lyrics with director Jon M. Chu’s lively and authentic eye for storytelling to capture a world very much of its place, but universal in its experience.

“In the Heights” stars Anthony Ramos (“A Star is Born,” Broadway’s “Hamilton”), Corey Hawkins (“Straight Outta Compton,” “BlacKkKlansman”), singer/songwriter Leslie Grace, Melissa Barrera (TV’s “Vida”), Olga Merediz (Broadway’s “In the Heights”), Daphne Rubin-Vega (Broadway’s “Rent”), Gregory Diaz IV (Broadway’s “Matilda the Musical”), Stephanie Beatriz (TV’s “Brooklyn Nine-Nine”), Dascha Polanco (TV’s “Orange is the New Black”) and Jimmy Smits (the “Star Wars” films).

Chu directed the film from a screenplay by Quiara Alegría Hudes, based on the musical stage play, music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, book by Quiara Alegría Hudes and concept by Miranda. Miranda, Hudes, Scott Sanders, Anthony Bregman and Mara Jacobs produced the film, with David Nicksay and Kevin McCormick serving as executive producers.

Behind the camera, Chu reunited with his “Crazy Rich Asians” production designer, Nelson Coates, and editor, Myron Kerstein. He also collaborated with director of photography Alice Brooks (TV’s “The Walking Dead”) and costume designer Mitchell Travers (“Eighth Grade”). Original songs by Miranda. Alex Lacamoire (“Fosse/Verdon”) and Bill Sherman (“Sesame Street”) served as executive music producers. The choreography is by Christopher Scott, who previously teamed with Chu on the award-winning “The Legion of Extraordinary Dancers.”
“In the Heights” was filmed in New York, primarily on location in the dynamic community of Washington Heights.

Warner Bros. Pictures presents a 5000 Broadway / Barrio Grrrl! / Likely Story / SGS Pictures Production, A Jon M. Chu Film, “In the Heights.” Slated to open on June 10, 2021 in theaters and on HBO Max, the film will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures. It will be available on HBO Max for 31 days from theatrical release.

“In the Heights” is rated PG-13 for some language and suggestive references.

  • Benny is a real one lmaoo

  • Who else here got reminded of the "21 Chump Street" by Lin Manuel when Usnavi said "Me and my cousin runnin' Just another dime-a-dozen mom-and-pop stop-and-shop" Sounds like this line from "Cousin" in 21 Chump Street My cousin Justin's looking for a little some-some For a certain someone, some girl he wants to be touching\ Or like you know, the lyrics of "Cousin",

  • I'm crying

  • This movie was garbage

    • @Darren Khosasi 2021 No it was just boring to me, plus I didn’t care about any of the characters

    • Is it because of the colorism?

  • 7:38 it looks life BIG ED , but i don't think its him

  • What does Benny hand to sunny when Vanessa walks in?

  • I was emotional. A brilliant movie worth watching it "WOW"! 😍❤

  • odio el spanglish y los gringos que se creen latinos.

  • Kevin Ocotan really hated this lol

  • anyone notice how in this scene he is in the crowd but not in the center because he doesnt realize how important being a streetlight is, then when he owns that at the end of the movie he in the center of the dance.

  • Unfortunate that a really good movie like this bombed at the box office

  • i love the oh no no no part

  • Can someone tel what the song sounds like at 2:02

    • It's a reference to "Take The 'A' Train" by Ella Fitzgerald and Duke Ellington.

    • I’m guessing latin music.

  • When Usnavi steps in gum 0:23 his face be like … damn im on camera :((

  • When Anthony sings with the window “LEGACY“ (im a Hamilton fan)(don’t judge)

  • Smh

  • I hate how they changed the lyrics to Usnavi and Kevin Rosario's interaction, they really couldn't think of anything better??

  • In the hights

  • 2:27 carla kissed daniela whsgwhwgajgs

  • 5:25 like when you're a baker and see he adds evaporated milk instead of condensed milk

  • I have been listening to this on repeat for a few days now and its still bomb.

  • DAYANARA FROM OITNB

  • Who else has watched this 100 + times since it was taken off HBO Max?!

  • That last part is so powerful. I don't know why, considering I'm Black, I'm not Puerto Rican or Dominican (Republic, I am half Jamaican and half from Commonwealth of Dominica, the tiny island) but the way the music swells, and the power behind his voice. He starts off the song chill, but there's a determination behind his voice as the song goes on, and by the time he gets to that point, it's almost sheer pride. Best way I can explain is as if everyone's been talking down his homeland and this is his opportunity to show it off, show off the amazing people and yeah.....just a lot of power. Bloody love Lin Manuel Miranda and his writing.

  • The "you'll be back" reference made the whole theatre laugh 🤣

  • I understand what they're saying 30... no, let's say 20 percent of the time.

  • No matter where you emigrated from, no matter where you immigrated to, this whole play/film hits you different.

  • The fact the main character made a story t8me on story both makes me wanna watch this so much more

  • Is it still Corner Store Hamilton if it was the one came before ?

  • I love Washington Heights Best Best Child memories. The 4th of July's are the best!

  • Boa noite, muito bom esse filme. Adorei o vídeo.

  • I thought the casting was phenomenal. This is Lin’s baby and I thought it was cool how he chose Ramos to play Us Navy instead of himself.

  • bro the take the a train reference was crazyyyyy

  • Amazing! I play this over and over and have watched the movie 4 times already. Hail to all involved in this Classic!

  • I'm so excited Hamilton

  • 5:12

  • I’m on only here for 2:59

  • Who’s here after they took it off HBO MAX!! I can’t get enough

  • I absolutely loved this movie. Amazing story and amazing actors. This movie makes me proud to be a New Yorker.

  • Lmao why am I just hearing the pronouns.. the salon ladies are talking about a husband cheating on his wife with a man 🤣😭

  • 5:11

  • The first song sounds like Hamilton I love it ❤️

  • “Let me just listen to my block” This happens MUCH later in the film.

  • Its beautiful... it's wonderful... it finally feels like my people are being seen... they got literally everything correct... I love it...

  • The children dancing blew me away! I would have never been able to dance that good at their ages(guessing based on their size and faces)

  • Can someone count how many times lin appears. Man was everywhere in the movie lol

  • Okay but Carla and Daniela waking up together 🤍. This movie has so much represention of everything, this has my heart!

  • It took me the longest time to realize that 2:26 is Daniela and Carla.

  • So Rosa and Amy's dad shops at the same corner store.

  • BOSS OR LOSS??

  • -

  • YUHH

  • I've been told that the name Usnavi comes from the times when US sailors were stationed in DR and had the patch that says US NAVY.

    • @Sami Khalil The explanation about the name? I didn't watch the movie.

    • Yea it’s in the movie

  • Meh

  • Okay, but Daniela and Carla waking up together and Carla gives her a kiss on the cheek,,, that made my heart soft

  • The dance choreography hits too hard and I love every moment of it.

  • Am I the only one obsessed with Vanessa's shoes?!?!

  • vanessa’s entrance!!! *chefs kisses*

  • 5:12 is my favourite part

  • I'm just gonna- 0:42

  • The choreography in this is just nuts, point blank. For musicals West Side Story is probably regarded as having the best choreography because of that opening scene with the jets, but that ending sequence where they just started going faster and faster was mind boggling and fascinating to watch. The salsa was already good but then the street view where they picked it up.......so difficult and complex

  • Ryan shut up you don't have a dad

  • are we just gonna talk abt how the beat and lyrics sound kinda like hamilton.. lin knew what he was doin 😏

  • I don't get why he says his syntax is highly complicated? It sounds pretty straightforward to me

  • Watched this in the cinema twice and i need it out for rent or sale already, like i want to binge to it non-stop, help.

    • @SuperJackster01 still not soon enough

    • It’s coming to Blu-Ray August 31st

  • usnavi’s “ayo good morning” gets me every time bro i feel like hes flirting with me

  • Daniela-Carla-Cuca’s introduction is *chef’s kiss*

  • 14 years later will be a classic

  • Am I the only one that loved that there are children in here killing it. Love it.

  • I'm watching this for the 164th time right now.

  • 1:19

  • this movie was soooo good

  • I need me a Vanessa

  • love this. i could rewatch this 50 times! (i have) legit I GOT CHILLS

  • i got chills

  • Seen the movie 3 times now and won't be my last, have the book and the soundtrack is on constant repeat on Spotify, the film is an absolute classic, the stories, the singing, great characters and amazing choreography. One of my favourite films ever, DVD on pre order also.

  • shivers

  • This movie got me crying because my Abuela Died Before I saw this movie.

  • Best key change *down* (a tone) like - ever - when the cousin enters. 4:03. Makes that passage of music sound sooo good!

  • Still really upset that this incredible film bombed in cinemas. So I'm showing this clip to as many people as possible. Maybe word of mouth will spread in coming years, and people will eventually see it at home.

    • It was terrible. And depressing.

    • Some people, including myself, just aren't up for a musical all the time. That doesn't mean I don't think the camera work, cinematography, choreography etc. aren't damn good. Just means I wasn't going to be running to see it in theaters.

  • Anybody else think that bennys voice sounds weird and choppy when he’s singing, but kinda likes it.

  • Wow. Just wow.

  • IT DOESN´T MATTER IF YOU ARE NOT LATINO... YOU´RE VERY WELCOME TO JOIN OUR PARTY! SALUDOS DESDE CHILE! TO YO´ALL!!!

  • Great

  • Absolute masterpiece

  • washingTONE

  • does any kind soul knows where i can watch in the heights with subtitles? english is not my native language so i need them
