Local Happenings | Monday Movies in the Park

August 7, 2017

What makes New York so great is you get things like HBO's Bryant Park Film Festival:  an awesome selection of movies, playing on a a huge outdoor screen in our very own neighbor-backyard, Bryant Park.  There are three screenings left this summer, and in our opinion they're the three best ones. PS movies in the park are free, so you can get yourself that extra drink at the bar. See you up top!
Monday Movie Nights! Right Around The Corner in Bryant Park
August 7 – All That Jazz | Bob Fosse's (Cabaret!) semi-autobiographal film won 4 Oscars and a Palme d'Or. Quick overview: When he is not planning for his upcoming stage musical or working on his Hollywood film, choreographer/director Joe Gideon (Roy Scheider) is popping pills and sleeping with a seemingly endless line of women. The physical and mental stress begins to take a toll on the ragged perfectionist. Soon, he must decide whether or not his non-stop work schedule and hedonistic lifestyle are worth risking his life. 
August 14 – North by Northwest | One of Alfred Hitchcock's absolute greatest films! Genre is more suspense-thriller rather than the horror often associated with the director. Cary Grant plays a New York ad man man mistaken for a key C.I.A. operative and finds himself thrust into a series of adventures as he runs away from the bad guys. 
August 21 – Dirty Dancing | Jennifer Grey + Patrick Swayze in the ultimate summer classic that will make you want to escape the city and dance.
