The free Central Park Conservancy Film Festival screens classics 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). About an hour before each movie screens, there’s a live DJ performance.
