The Outdoor Film Series

Film at Lincoln Center (FLC), home of the New York Film Festival and one of the world's most respected venues for year-round film festivals, retrospectives, new releases, and restorations, expands out of the theaters and under the stars with an exciting selection of free outdoor movie screenings as part of Summer for the City. Over five evenings on select Thursdays and Fridays in June and July, New Yorkers will be treated to FLC-curated picks on a massive screen in Damrosch Park. High-quality format, ample seating, and on-site concessions with popcorn and drinks will offer audiences all the value and comfort that FLC is famous for.
