Here at the Media Command HQ we just love the movies. Love, love, love the movies and with so many superhero and action flicks being released I’ve spent quite a few afternoons enjoying a matinee. With “Godzilla King Of The Monsters”, “Dark Phoenix” and “Spider-Man: Far From Home” being released soon, I will have a lot to address on that end. Every year, the folks at Bryant Park open up their lawn and set up the big screen for a bunch of free movie screenings. Check out the rundown for this summer down below.
The Press Release:
Bring a blanket and sit on the Lawn to enjoy great food, friends, and a feature film. Lawn opens 5pm and film begins at sunset. Movie Nights are presented by Netflix with support from Chandon and Vulture. Enjoy the show! Food items for sale curated by Hester Street Fair on the Fountain Terrace.

Piercing Ken Thoughts: As you can see there are quite a few good films to enjoy with your friends and loved ones on a summer night provided that the weather doesn’t have other plans for the day. I love the idea of things like this since it brings people together and celebrates film. Given my general schedule I don’t usually make it out to stuff like this myself but I will still be loading all of the free screenings on our regional Events Calendar. What do you readers think about these films and which are you most interested in seeing in this setting? Chime in down below in the comments section. See you next time and be sure to scope out the rest of the do’s and dont’s on the website linked below.
