This year, Governor’s Island joins in the City’s tradition of free summer movies by hosting its inaugural film series. The screenings, produced in partnership with Rooftop Films and the Film Society of Lincoln Center, will take place on the island’s Parade Ground, overlooking the Lower Manhattan skyline. Not only are the feature films in the series New York City themed, but each will be preceded by a short film from an NYC-based director.
