Bryant Park Movies


There are so many fun things to do in New York in the summertime. These people were waiting to watch "Casablanca" in Bryant Park last week, part of the summer-long film series in the Park. The movie doesn't start till after dark, but lots of people get there early to stake out their spots. I don't think there was any room left that day!

Looks like fun but I wonder if it would be hard to see.

Ahh to be able to do that. More or less guarranteed fine weather. One of my favourite films too.

In Honolulu, we have a similar event called "Sunset On The Beach" at Kuhio Beach in Waikiki on the weekends. That draws a large crowd as well.

I think the NYC version packs a lot more people.

cela devait etre superbe de voir "Casablanca" sur le grand ecran dans ce sublime Bryant Park. De plus "Casablanca" le film romantique par excellence. tu es reste pour voir le film ?

Hi everyone!

Blue Wave, it must be a beautiful setting for that film series in Waikiki!

Olivier, malheureusement, je ne pourrais pas rester là pour voir le film. Quand j'ai pris cette photo, il était encore trois heures avant que le film a commencé. Peut-être la prochaine année! (No, I didn’t see it. When I took the photo it was still four hours before the film started. Maybe next year!)

it is a very beautiful environment, picked, from a sense of peace and calm. Buon fine settimana!

That's nifty. And I've never seen Casablanca. (head hanging in shame)
