HBO Bryant Park Summer Film Festival 2007

This series of free, outdoor, classic movie screenings is on Monday nights throughout the summer in Bryant Park, Manhattan and is a hugely popular event on the New York calendar. In the rare event that it rains, films are screened at sunset the following night.

The lawn opens at 5pm for blankets and picnicking and the films begin at dusk (typically 8pm-9pm). The weather, humidity and film all play a role in the number of people that attend, but typically you can expect to join around 10,000 people per screening. Get your seat early!
