The eight best outdoor movie screenings left this summer

Written by

The summer might be almost over (sorry to remind you), but there's no rule that you can't watch movies outside after Labor Day. The last few years have seen NYC transform into one of the best cities on Earth for outdoor cinema, and a bunch of awesome new events—like Rooftop Film Club, which finally brought London's snazziest sunset screening series to the States—helped take things to a new level in 2015. And the fun is going to rage on until the calendar tells us it isn't summer anymore. (The folks at Habana Outpost aren't even going to stop then.) The Central Park Conservancy Film Festival kicks off today, while Rooftop Film Club has saved some of the best for last, including a late September screening of Man on Wire hosted by Time Out and timed to the New York Film Festival premiere of The Walk, the new Robert Zemeckis movie based on James Marsh's brilliant doc.

Check out our full schedule of outdoor movie screenings, and be sure to head over to our Rooftop Film Club tickets page when you know what you want to see (since those screenings aren't free).
