TCM Big Screen Classics series continues with “Boyz n the Hood” 30th Anniversary on 2/28 & 3/3

The seventh annual TCM Big Screen Classics continues on Sun., Feb. 28 and Wed., Mar. 3 when Turner Classic Movies and Fathom Events bring Boyz n the Hood 30th Anniversary to select cinemas nationwide. 

In honor of Black History Month, this classic film returns to cinemas and includes exclusive insights from Turner Classic Movies. 

Written and directed by John Singleton, Boyz n the Hood is the critically acclaimed coming-of-age story of growing up in a South Central Los Angeles neighborhood. It is a place where harmony co-exists with adversity, especially for three young men growing up there: Doughboy (Ice Cube), an unambitious drug dealer; his brother Ricky (Morris Chestnut), a college-bound teenage father; and Ricky’s best friend Tre (Cuba Gooding, Jr.), who aspires to a brighter future beyond “The Hood.” In a world where a trip to the store can end in death, the friends have diverse reactions to their bleak surroundings. Tre’s resolve is strengthened by a strong father (Larry Fishburne) who keeps him on the right track. But the lessons Tre learns are put to the ultimate test when tragedy strikes close to home, and retaliation seems the only recourse.
