Central Park Movie Series

Attention all you outdoor movie lovers (read: everyone). The Central Park film festival kicks off a week from tomorrow. They'll be showing a total of 5 movies, all picked to highlight "Iconic New York" between Tuesday and Saturday. For everyone who loves outdoor movies, but hasn't been able to make the time to see enough of them this summer now is your chance to get in a bunch before summer ends. The movies start at 8, though gates open to the public at 6:30pm. I recommend bringing some wine, snacks, and a blanket and getting there early to score a good spot. They are showing just north of sheeps meadow at mid-park and 69th street. You can find more info on this website.

  • Tuesday 8/24: Fame
  • Wednesday 8/25: The Taking of Pelham 1,2, 3 (The new version with Denzel)
  • Thursday 8/26: Saturday Night Fever (this would have been a better choice for a Saturday NYC...)
  • Friday 8/27: King Kong (the old version, not the stupid Naomi Watts version)
  • Saturday 8/28: Manhattan (Woddy Allen and Diane Keaton, how can you go wrong?)

I'd like to see all of them, but I'm guessing I'll definitely try to fit in Saturday Night Fever. I think I'll pass on The Taking of Pelham 1,2,3. Riding the subway this time of year is scary enough with all the smelly people. I don't need to have nightmares of train hijackings too. Thank-you-very-much. Get out there and enjoy!
