New York City's Bryant Park Announces Summer Film Schedule


Watching movies under the stars is one of the great New York City summer traditions, and one of the most popular (that is to say, most crowded) places to watch classics and modern classics alike is Midtown's Bryant Park

This year, the summer season will commence on June 17 with Tootsie (remember what a…striking woman Dustin Hoffman made?) and continue through the middle of August. Here is the schedule:

June 24th—Invasion of the Body Snatchers

July 1st—Frenzy

July 8th—Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory

July 15th—Hush…Hush, Sweet Charlotte

July 22nd—The African Queen

July 29th—A Foreign Affair

August 5th—Norma Rae

August 12th—The Women

August 19th—E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial 

Tips: Get there early and make a picnic of it. The lawn opens at 5pm and most movies won't begin until dark (which, during the height of summer, can take a while.) No chairs, tables, dogs, plastic sheets, tarps, bags, or pads are permitted on the lawn. There are plenty of restaurants nearby for food, but no alcohol is allowed on the lawn.
