Part of the Wednesday Night Movies series of free screenings presented by Queens Borough President Sharon Lee.
Dir. Barry Sonnenfeld.US, 1997, 98 mins. With Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones, Rip Torn. This sardonic, New York-set sci-fi smash features Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones in comic-cool mode as agents of a top-secret organization that polices extraterrestrial activity on Earth. A whirlwind city adventure, from the Upper East Side to Battery Park to Queens’ own Flushing Meadows Corona Park—with the New York Pavilion featured in a show-stopping set piece—Men in Black is fueled by the central joke that there’s no better place for outer-space aliens to hide than in New York’s diverse melting pot.
