Spike Lee fans get ready. One of the director’s most popular films, Do The Right Thing, may be heading to a theater near you this month in celebration of its 30th anniversary.

Universal Pictures has partnered with the Criterion Collection to commemorate the 1989 Oscar-nominated classic by showing a 4K restoration version nationwide in select theaters beginning June 28, according to Deadline.

Screenings and “one-week engagements” will take place at select AMC, Regal, Cinemark, and Alamo Drafthouse theaters. The groundbreaking film will also be shown in select New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Austin and Brookline, MA theaters in the original 35mm version.

Fans can also plan to scoop up a “director approved” Blue Blu-ray/DVD featuring the 4K restoration of the film which is set to be released on the official anniversary of the release on July 23. And if you’re lucky enough to be in New York, Lee will host his infamous free Block Party in Brooklyn to celebrate the rerelease of the film.
