The Central Park Conservancy is teaming up with two iconic New York City cultural institutions, the Museum of the Moving Image and the Museum of the City of New York, for the 16th annual Central Park Conservancy Film Festival, with a lineup featuring great New York City films and filmmakers.
Directed by Milos Forman (who died this year), choreographed by Twyla Tharp, and based on the popular Broadway musical of the 60s, this classic comedy-drama tells the story of Claude, a young man from Oklahoma who comes to New York City on his way to joining the Army and strikes up a friendship with a group of hippies in Central Park.
A beloved summer tradition, the Central Park Conservancy Film Festival has screened critically acclaimed films in Central Park each August since 2002. Films are free of charge; no tickets are required. The screenings will take place around 8:00 p.m. at Central Park’s Frisbee Hill — the landscape north of Sheep Meadow (mid Park at 69th Street beside Le Pain Quotidien), which is accessible from the east and west sides of the Park at 72nd Street.
