Movies With A View is a summer must that has earned a large and loyal following. Since its launch in 2000, we’ve wowed, entertained, thrilled, and pulled at the heartstrings of over 340,000 moviegoers, making our program one of New York City’s favorite summer film series. Movies With A View takes place every Thursday evening in July and August. In 2017, the eight-week series will draw an average of 7,000 film fans at each screening. There is no better place to be on a hot summer night than watching a classic film and enjoying the breeze off of the East River from Harbor View Lawn with the dazzling Manhattan skyline before you.

More about Movies With A View

Will food and drinks be available for purchase?

Yes! This year, we’re partnering with DeKalb Market Hall to bring in some of Brooklyn’s favorite food vendors. We’ll have kebabs, sandwiches, popcorn, cake pops, and so much more! To go along with these treats, beer and wine will be available for purchase, as well.

Can I bring my own food?

Of course — feel free to bring in your own food, but outside alcohol is still prohibited on the lawn. To that end, be advised that bag checks will be conducted at the entrance.

Why is there a bag check now?

Outside alcohol and glass bottles have always been prohibited in the Park. This year, we’re partnering with DeKalb Market Hall to bring food, beer, and wine vending to the Movies. With these new offerings, we want to remind you of this policy in order to ensure the safety and security of moviegoers.

We hope you enjoy these new options!

When should I come?

Food and music start at 6:00 PM, and movies begin at sundown. Make sure to come at least 30 minutes before the screening to move through bag check, stake out a good spot, and take in the spectacular skyline!
