This year, Bryant Park will screen movies on Mondays and Tuesdays from August 23 to September 28
Bryant Park Movie Nights is a New York summer tradition. Each week, they were projecting a movie, with the vibes of the summer and all the people laying in the park and enjoying the movie. Completely for free. Then the pandemic came, and last year clearly, every got canceled.
Well, here we are again!
Bryant Park Movie Nights presented by Verizon returns on August 23! Ten movies, selected in collaboration with Vulture, will be screened this summer on Monday and Tuesday evenings through September 28. Bring a blanket and sit on the lawn to enjoy great food, friends, and a feature film. Lawn and food and wine concessions open at 5 pm; the film begins at sunset.
