Central Park Conservancy Film Festival
Tuesday, Aug 25 - Saturday, Aug 29, 2015
In 1980, Central Park Conservancy was founded by a group of concerned citizens determined to reverse the decline of Central Park. This year’s Central Park Conservancy Film Festival features classic films from the year 1980, and is presented in partnership with Museum of the Moving Image. A Museum representative will speak at each screening. Gates open at 6:30 p.m., and movies begin at 8:00 p.m. Films will screen rain or shine. A DJ will perform from 6:30–8:00 p.m. The festival is free. Tickets are not required.
The films are screened on the landscape between Sheep Meadow and the 72nd Street Cross Drive (Terrace Drive). Please enter the Park at 72nd Street at Central Park West or Fifth Avenue.
