Every summer in NYC from June to August, Bryant Park becomes the “hot spot” at dusk for their annual HBO BRYANT PARK SUMMER FILM FESTIVAL. I mean what could more fun than grabbing a couple blankets, some snacks, and a few really good friends and camping out for a couple hours with a classic under the stars (well….the stars you can see in New York)?
JULY 4th – EASY RIDER
JULY 11th – GENTLEMEN PREFER BLONDES
JULY 18th – IN THE HEAT OF THE NIGHT
JULY 25th – THE LADY EVE
AUGUST 1st – COOL HAND LUKE
AUGUST 8th – AIRPLANE!
AUGUST 15th – HIGH SIERRA
AUGUST 22nd – DIRTY HARRY
The gravel exterior opens up in Bryant Park at 4:00p, and the lawn does so at 5:00p….so it may be a good idea to have at least one representative with your group to get there by like 4:30p to ensure you’ll have enough space. Feel free to bring goodies…but know your bladder, because there’s only one restroom to navigate through the crowd to get to.
At the HBO BRYANT PARK SUMMER FILM FESTIVAL you will definitely be in good company, because it’s a “must do” for summer. So, grab a blanket and someone you love and get down there under the stars.
