It’s almost time for the annual Central Park Film Festival, where movies are screened nightly outside in the park for a whole week. Outdoor flicks! And it’s free!
This year’s theme is Scenes from our City, focusing on films where New York is one of the stars of the movie. Here’s a lineup of the dates and offerings:
Monday, August 18th: Big (1988, PG)
Tuesday, August 19th: The Royal Tennenbaums (2001, R)
Wednesday, August 20th: The Way We Were (1973, PG)
Thursday, August 21st: Coming to America (1988, R)
Friday, August 22nd: Rear Window (1954, PG)
Seems that they were able to pluck one terrific movie from almost every decade over the past 50 years, doesn’t it?
The festival takes place just north of the Sheep Meadow, between Sheep Meadow and the 72nd St. Cross Drive. (Best way to reach it is to enter mid-Park at 69th St.) Gates open at 6:30 pm and the movie starts at 8:00 pm.)
Bring a blanket and snacks!
