Time Out says

Free outdoor film screenings are back on Governors Island for the summer! The Trust for Governors Island and Film at Lincoln Center are kicking it off with John Cameron Mitchell's Hedwig and the Angry Inch on June 3 followed by an August 5 screening of Sidney Lumet's The Wiz. As usual, you'll get to claim a spot on the Parade Ground, the expansive eight-acre lawn wide-open views of lower Manhattan that defines the island.

"Free outdoor screenings in the summer are a treat for New York audiences," said Lesli Klainberg, the president of Film at Lincoln Center, in an official statement. "Film at Lincoln Center looks forward to celebrating iconic films on Governors Island, a spectacular location to gather."

Both screenings are free and open to the public with pre-show entertainment kicking off at 7pm and the films beginning at dusk. Food and drinks will be available for purchase, including a beer garden by Threes Brewing along with food from Pizza Yard and additional Governors Island vendors to be announced.
