Central Park Film Festival: location and star of the fest

Viewers’ Choice Closes This Five-Night Film Festival, August 29 through September 2, at Central Park’s Rumsey Playfield, VOTE NOW!

Central Park is the location and the star of a five-night film festival produced by the Central Park Conservancy and sponsored by Bloomberg. New to this year’s festival is a “Viewers’ Choice” screening, which gives New Yorkers the unique opportunity to pick the film they want to see on the final night of the festival.

Unreeling in Central Park’s Rumsey Playfield (East 69th Street, off Fifth Avenue), the Film Festival offers a great excuse to gather together under the summer stars to watch some of the silver screen’s most memorable movies that contain scenes filmed in Central Park. Since making its debut in the 1908 silent version of Romeo and Juliet, Central Park has been the backdrop of more than 200 movies.

All screenings are FREE and start at 8:00 pm. Gates open at 6:00 pm. Rain or shine. Bloomberg will provide FREE handheld fans to the first 500 film fans that arrive each night and FREE popcorn to everyone.

The series kicks off on Tuesday, August 29, with, The Apartment, winner of five Oscars. The line-up continues on Wednesday, August 30, with the infamous Glenn Close – Michael Douglas thriller, Fatal Attraction (rated R), and on Thursday, August 31, with Godspell, the 1973 musical featuring a group of merrymakers doing what many Park visitors have only dreamed of –splashing around in Bethesda Fountain. Friday, September 1, is a night for the entire family as Michael J. Fox breathes life into an animated mouse, Stuart Little, who takes a wild ride on a model boat on Central Park’s Conservatory Water.

On Viewers’ Choice night, Saturday, September 2, movie fans have the opportunity to pick their favorite of three classic Central Park films to watch that evening. Three seminal New York films, Manhattan, The Way We Were, and Wall Street, which inspire everything from romance to greed, will be offered as choices. WABC Channel 7 will be supporting the online poll. Filmgoers can go to www.7online.com and choose the movie of the evening. Voting begins July 29 and ends on August 29.
