Bryant Park Movie Nights is a New York summer tradition. Unfortunately, last year the city had to go without the popular series—for obvious reasons. Thankfully, the series is back this year.
The comeback lineup will kickoff with a screening of Clueless on August 23. The '90s comedy classic was selected by New York Magazine subscribers in an online vote. There will also be an inaugural “Broadway to Film'' series, which will feature special appearances from talent involved in current productions of popular Broadway plays that have equally popular movie adaptations and/or movie sources. A number of the productions are set to return to Broadway this fall, so the series is aimed at raising awareness and excitement for Broadway’s highly anticipated reopening. Films included in the first-of-its-kind series includes Moulin Rouge!, Phantom of the Opera, and Mrs. Doubtfire.
Contemporary classics will also be shown throughout the summer.
Below is the full line-up:
Monday, August 23: Clueless
Tuesday, August 24: Hustlers
Monday, August 30: The Muppets Take Manhattan
Tuesday, August 31: Inside Man
Monday, September 6: Uncut Gems
Tuesday, September 7: Love & Basketball
Monday, September 13: Moonstruck
Tuesday, September 14: MOULIN ROUGE!
Monday, September 27: The Phantom of the Opera
Tuesday, September 28: Mrs. Doubtfire
Outdoor films series are taking the city by storm. Recently, New York Parks and Recreation announced the return of last year’s wild popular Movies Under The Stars, with film screenings taking place in various parks and playgrounds throughout the city. And The Greens at Pier 17 has transformed into a fabulous outdoor movie venue again this year too.
Bryant Park Movie Nights will take place on Monday nights and, for the first time, also on Tuesday nights, in order to better accommodate high-interest. As always, the events will be free to the public and each screening will begin shortly after sunset (typically between 8pm-9pm). You can find out more information here.
