Central Park Conservancy Film Festival
Defy the summer heat at this annual outdoor film series. Details for this year are yet to be announced, but last year's schedule—as voted on by you, the public—included big hits like Raiders of the Lost Ark, West Side Story and The Shining. Screenings will be held just north of the Sheep Meadow (enter the park at West 72nd Street). It's free, so bring a blanket and a picnic basket, and come early to snag a good spot (gates open at 6:30pm; movies start at 8pm). Check centralparknyc.org for updates on this year's lineup.
