The Bryant Park film festival starts this year on June 16th. Every Monday at 5:00 pm, New Yorkers gather with blankets and picnic supplies in the park, located behind the New York Public Library in Midtown Manhattan, between 40th and 42nd Streets and Fifth and Sixth Avenues. (I’d bet there even earlier–maybe 4:30–to get a prime spot.) Films begin at sunset (figure between 8 and 9). Dramas, comedies, classics..something for everyone will be screened. Best of all? It’s free.
