The Out-of-Towners (1970)
What happens: George (Jack Lemmon) and Gwen (Sandy Dennis), a couple from Ohio, head to New York City for George's big job interview and plan a nice night out beforehand. Instead, they encounter various obstacles, including transit mishaps, labor unrest and muggers.
Notable spots: George and Gwen arrive in New York City at the landmark Grand Central Terminal. After they're turned away from the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel, the couple has to spend the night sleeping in Central Park (below).
Pro tip: Even if you're shut out of the Waldorf-Astoria, you can find plenty of indoor lodging options on our hotels page.
