October 9, 2020 (Los Angeles, CA) - The 34th edition of AFI FEST 2020 presented by Audi has added a Centerpiece Drive-in screening to this year's line-up. The Amazon Original film ONE NIGHT IN MIAMI, directed by Academy Award winner Regina King, will screen at the Rose Bowl's drive-in set up on October 18, Monday.

The film takes place over one night with icons Muhammad Ali, Malcolm X, Sam Cooke and Jim Brown examining the civil rights movement. Written by Olivier-nominated Kemp Powers, based off his 2013 stage play, is produced by Jess Wu Calder, Keith Calder and Jody Klein, and King and Powers are executive producers.

The film stars Kingsley Ben-Adir, Eli Goree, Aldis Hodge and Leslie Odom, Jr. Set in one incredible night in 1964, four icons of sports, music, and activism gathered to celebrate one of the biggest upsets in boxing history when underdog Cassius Clay, soon to be called Muhammad Ali (Eli Goree), defeats heavyweight champion Sonny Liston at the Miami Convention Hall. Clay memorialized the event with the three of his friends Malcolm X (Kingsley Ben-Adir), Sam Cooke (Leslie Odom, Jr.) and Jim Brown (Aldis Hodge).

The film is a fictional account inspired by the historic night these four formidable figures spent together. It looks at the struggles these men faced and the vital role they each played in the civil rights movement and the cultural upheaval of the 1960s. More than 40 years later, their conversations on racial injustice, religion, and personal responsibility resonate. Amazon Studios will release ONE NIGHT IN MIAMI in select theatres on December 25, 2020 and will be launched globally on Amazon Prime Video on January 15, 2021.
