Movies in the Park in New York City

Today we're highlighting free outdoor movie events that are happening this summer in New York City (also known as America's Mecca, The City of Cities, The City that Never Sleeps, The Entertainment Capital of the World, and last but certainly not least The Big Apple). We all know that New York doesn't shy away from doing things right. When it comes to movies in the park on an inflatable movie screen, they hit the nail on the head. At Open Air Cinema we're right on board when New York City decides to put together 5 different movies series together, each on an inflatable movie screen, in the parks and public spaces free for the public, and that's exactly what they've done.
