Surrounded by the bright lights of New York City, it can be hard to see stars in the night sky. So, on these warm summer nights, why not step outside and check out the stars on the silver screen instead?
This summer, the City of New York will again be hosting a series of outdoor movie screenings, to be held at various venues, ranging from Bryant Park to The Intrepid’s flight deck to the self-sustaining, solar-powered SolarOne center. Film choices include classics such as Top Gun, West Side Story, and The Breakfast Club, as well as new favorites, among them, American Hustle and The Hunger Games. Shows are frequent, family-friendly, and one-hundred percent free to the public. Check out this summer’s schedule on Thrillist and find the perfect occasion for a reunion of friends, romantic date, or family night out.
Don’t let light pollution keep you from seeing the stars this summer! In between vacations, celebrations, and catching up with old friends, take the opportunity to appreciate nature, twilight cinema, and the free things in life all at once, with New York’s summer movie screenings—on the house.
