Central Park Film Festival 2010

Central Park Film Festival 2010

The 2010 Central Park Movie Festival concludes tonight with Manhattan, which was chosen by the Viewer’s Choice Poll conducted each year. It was a great lineup, except that Serendipity, with its beautiful shots of Wollman Rink in winter, should not have had to face off with the Woody Allen classic as viewer’s choice. Not while The Taking Of Pelham 123, the turgid potboiler of a remake, is the disappointing Tuesday night offering.

Anyway – The eighth annual festival will be held for the first time in the landscape north of Sheep Meadow, behind Mineral Springs (mid-Park at 69th Street). Enter the Park at 72nd Street.

All screenings begin at 8:00 pm, rain or shine. Gates open to the public at 6:30 pm. Bring a picnic!

Tuesday, August 24: Fame Wednesday, August 25: The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 Thursday, August 26: Saturday Night Fever Friday, August 27: King Kong Saturday, August 28: Manhattan
