Summer Movie Nights in NYC


Embrace a change of scenery and head to one of NYC’s many parks this summer for a trip to the theatre! While it may not be your typical movie plaza with popcorn, soda and cushioned seats, parks around the city will be hosting their very own movie nights all summer long. Bring your own snacks, a blanket and catch a great film with friends. Here are some places our Sagamore residents can visit for summer movies this year.


Riverside Park: If Pixar films hold a special place in your heart bringing you back to your own childhood movie screenings, the Riverside Park Summer Movie Series is a must attend event! Films like Toy Story, Wall-E and Up will be shown throughout the summer at Pier 1, right here on the West Side!


Randall’s Island: Catch a summer flick outside at Randall Park in NYC! They will be hosting their summer movie nights through the End of August for the 25th year in a row. They will be showing a variety of films such as kid favorites like Inside Out, Coco and comedic favorites like Sister Act and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.


Bryant Park: Bryant Park will be hosting a variety of summer movies this year now through August 10th. Films range from classic favorites like The Breakfast Club to action adventures like the terminator. Grab drinks or snacks before any showing by visiting the Upper Terrace or Hester Street Fair.


Central Park: The Central Park Conservatory will host film screenings starting in August between Sheep’s Meadow and 72nd street. Films will be shown throughout one week during the month beginning at 8pm. This years lineup includes The Muppets, Hair and more! Gates open at 6 and a DJ will provide entertainment until the movie begins.
