Bryant Park Lawn 42nd Street and 6th Avenue
The nation’s premier outdoor film festival brings classic films to the big screen for the 17th consecutive year. Thousands of movie fans flock to the park for picnics and an evening of film’s biggest stars in Bryant Park. The lawn opens at 5 p.m. and the films start at sunset.
This week’s presentation is “How Green Was My Valley.” Winner of the Best Picture and Best Director Oscars (over “Citizen Kane”), this beautiful film is about a close-knit family in a Welsh mining village. John Ford directed the story, told through the eyes of a young Roddy McDowell, striking an incredible balance between moral seriousness and elegy.
