HBO Bryant Park Summer Film Festival
June 22 – August 24, 2015
Sixth Ave. bet. W. 40th and W. 42nd Sts.
Manhattan, NY 10018
Free outdoor film screenings are one of the joys of New York City summers, and the Bryant Park series is particularly lovely. The movies start at dusk, but folks start trickling in when the park's lush grassy lawn opens at 5pm—many just head over straight from the office still in their work clothes, takeout food and blankets in tow. (Follow suit and arrive early; the lawn gets pretty crowded by sundown.) Among the movies that will brighten up the start of your work week: Ghostbusters, Footloose and Back to the Future.
