THE ROYALE

JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 12, 2017

Jay “The Sport” Jackson has his eyes set on becoming the heavyweight champion of the world, but the Jim Crow reality of 1905 America might just be his fiercest opponent yet. This thrilling drama goes ringside for the fight of the century. Inspired by the true story of trail-blazing boxer Jack Johnson, The Royale follows one man’s quest for victory against all odds.
