Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse Hosts “In The Heights” Community Watch Party in Celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month

In celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15th through October 15th), Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse is hosting a FREE public screening of the inspiring musical film “In The Heights” on Wednesday, October 6th at 7:00 p.m.


Free tickets are available NOW at Guests 17 years of age and under must be accompanied by an adult. All guests who attend the screening will also receive a complimentary ticket to the Cavs preseason game at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse on Friday, October 8th vs. Indians Pacers.


“Hosting the “In The Heights” movie screening is important to our entire Rock Entertainment Group because it provides another opportunity to help bring our community together around one common interest,” said Cavaliers Vice President of Diversity, Inclusion and Engagement Kevin Clayton. “Not only does the screening celebrate the LatinX community and highlight their culture, it allows for people across all dimensions of diversity in our region to come together in one central location here in downtown Cleveland. This is just one, fun point of engagement as we continue to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month. Events like this are also a reflection of our core commitment to remain authentic and engaged with the kaleidoscope of communities that are part of The Land, especially as they celebrate their respective heritage.”


The Hispanic Heritage Month movie screening is made possible thanks to a collaboration of many Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse community partners in the LatinX community, including:

  • Hispanic Star (Cleveland)
  • AmMore Consulting
  • NEO Hispanic Business Center
  • Young Latino Network
  • Esperanza
  • Hispanic Police Officers Association
  • Metro West
  • Julia de Borgos Cultural Arts Center
  • Comite Mexicano

100+ Latinos Cleveland Must Know

AmMore Consulting, a company dedicated to supporting organizations becoming Latin ready, recently announced the second class of 100+ Latinos Cleveland Must Know, which includes the Cavs very own Rafael Hernandez Brito. This year, the program was also presented by The Hispanic Star, a nationwide collective effort to unify Hispanics, bring solutions to help them overcome barriers they face, and positively change the perception of the community.


A special VIP reception for this year’s honorees will be held at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse on Wednesday, prior to the movie screening.
