Lin-Manuel Miranda’s In The Heights finally made it to the silver screen earlier this summer.
The musical smash hit was released to streaming platform HBO Max on Friday, 11 June 2021, getting its theatrical release a week later, on 18 June.
Viewers around the world tuned in to watch Anthony Ramos and the cast sing and dance their way through New York’s Washington Heights. The film is adapted from Lin-Manuel Miranda’s 2008 musical of the same name.
But for those looking to repeat-watch, or others who have yet to see the “feelgood film of the summer,” you are now too late to catch it on HBO Max.
When is In The Heights leaving HBO Max?
In The Heights is leaving HBO Max on Sunday, 11 July 2021. The streaming platform confirmed that the film was leaving on their official Twitter page.
On 10 July, HBO Max tweeted: “In The Heights may leave HBO Max tomorrow, but Anthony Ramos is forever.”
“In The Heights is available in theaters and on HBO Max, only on the Ad-Free plan streaming in the US for a limited time,” they continued.
Can you stream In The Heights anywhere else online?
HBO Max had exclusive rights to stream In The Heights, but as the film is removed from the platform, you might be wondering if it’s headed elsewhere.
As of yet, it has not been confirmed where the film will be available to stream.
Fans have speculated where the musical will be headed next. One theory is that In The Heights could be headed to Disney+, as that’s where Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton is available.
This has been shot down by another, who spoke of HBO Max’s release schedule.
They wrote: “It’ll eventually come back to HBO. They’re doing a 30-day theatrical/HBOMax release and then the films get removed and then eventually they come back.”
“It’s not a Disney film, so it won’t be on Disney Plus. It’s a WB film, and WarnerMedia owns HBO,” they continued.
This is what happened with Wonder Woman 1984 when it was released last year.
