A major expansion of the popular summer ‘Movies Under the Stars’ will allow Queens residents to enjoy free summer screenings in parks.
Mayor Bill de Blasio, Media and Entertainment Commissioner Julie Menin and Parks Commissioner Mitchell Silver announced Tuesday that ‘Movies Under the Stars’ series will bring twice as many movies as last year. Three hundred movies will be screened in parks across the five boroughs, including Queens.
“Movies and entertainment in the parks are what New York summers are made of,” Queens Borough President Melinda Katz said. “More people than ever will be able to enjoy family-friendly movies free of charge in their neighborhood parks. The Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment and NYC Parks deserve to be commended for working together to bring 300 film screenings to our city’s parks this season.”
The annual series ‘Movies Under the Stars’ encourages New Yorkers to pack a picnic, grab a blanket, and enjoy free movies in their neighborhood park. All movies begin at dusk.
The full Queens schedule is as follows:
