Central Park Conservancy Film Festival
August 24 – August 28, 2015
North of the Sheep Meadow, Central Park
The free Central Park Conservancy Film Festival screens classics old and new just north of the Sheep Meadow (enter the park at West 72nd Street). Bring a blanket and a picnic basket and come early to snag a good spot (gates open at 6:30pm; movies start at 8pm). The 2015 lineup has yet to be announced, but last year's series saluted New York with five movies that captured the City from a variety of angles: Big, The Royal Tenenbaums, The Way We Were, Ghostbusters and Rear Window. Visit centralparknyc.org for more information and updates on this year's screenings.
