New York City, New York: Outdoor Movies at Socrates Park in Queens
Maybe a movie from southeast Asia about a mutant lizard sounds like it's been done before, but the 2006 film The Host, by director Bong Joon-ho, is one of the most popular films ever in South Korea. It will make an outdoor splash on the East River tonight as part of the Socrates Sculpture Park Outdoor Cinema festival.
Organizers of each Wednesday film night make it a full-blown Queens experience, bringing in food from local, ethnic restaurateurs and song & dance from local performers.
Event planner Shaun Leonardo says The Host will be the first thriller film shown at the park, and that it's a perfect setting for a lizard coming out of the water. Still to come this summer is an Italian night with Fellini's 8ВЅ and Mexican with the movie Duck Season .
