Get Ready For The Free HBO Bryant Park Film Festival @ Bryant Park

Recently, I posted about a group of free concerts for the early riser that would be happening over at the Central Park Summerstage as a part of the Good Morning America broadcast and if you missed that posting, just click HERE to catch up to the rest of us. Now its onto another special offering that our fair Big Apple will be doling out care of the fine folks at HBO. Situated in the smaller but beautiful Bryant Park, interested fans will have the chance to enjoy a free screening of some truly awesome movies right under the stars and skyscrapers of Manhattan. Though the summers in NYC are often quite the sweltering experience, I have to think that a nice cool breeze will be present along with plenty of good company. Check out the films below. The events begin the run on June 19th until August 21st and the lawn portion opens up at 5pm.

Dates & Featured Film:
June 19 – King Kong
June 26 – On the Town
July 3 – The Muppets Take Manhattan
July 10 – Sabrina
July 17 – Wall Street
July 24 – Pillow Talk
July 31 – The Hustler
August 7 – All That Jazz
August 14 – North by Northwest
August 21 – Dirty Dancing

PiercingKen Thoughts: Events and happenings such as this make me enjoy my NYC residency all the more. I mean come on, everything around us is so damned expensive so having the chance to enjoy a classic movie for free in a Metropolis setting such as this one is awesome. Plus you will get out early enough to continue the fun into one of the many bars and restaurants that offer a later evening service if you need it. Then there is also the chance to walk around in Times Square before its too late and you need to get back into gear for the next mornings work or classes. I love it and plan on adding all of these films to our handy dandy Events Calendar so the masses are kept in the know. I’ve yet to participate in one of these free screenings and its mostly been my lack of freetime thanks to the numerous tasks that are needed for maintenance. You can let me know which films strike your own fancy and what you think about the overall festival and your plans to attend or not. There are numerous details to be aware of which I’ve linked to below so definitely examine those before you head over to any screening. Given the world that we live in today, a number of these are aimed at your protection and better enjoyment. That’s all I’ve got for now, until next time.
