2019 Movies Under The Stars in New York City’s Parks

2019 Movies Under The Stars
in New York City’s Parks

From May to September 2019

Listings come courtesy of the NYC Department of Parks and Recreation. Please be sure to check back at their site for updates, changes and possible cancellations. We’re listing only what’s available thus far at this point near the tail end of May, but we’ll be updating this page on an almost weekly basis until we’re sure that the listings are finalized which may not come until we’re past the mid-summer season point in August. Regardless, we’re very confident that there will be a whole lot more items to come.

As is the norm with most other outdoor free film offerings in the city you can expect films to begin at and around sunset.

PLEASE BE SURE to check on each respective link for cancellations!
