Outdoor Movies in NYC

There are a lot of free activities in NYC during the summer, outdoor movie nights are one of New York’s most popular summer traditions. No NYC summer is complete without watching at least one outdoor movie with your friends or significant other. Imagine watching a classic movie, under the stars, with New York’s buildings as a backdrop. In this blog post we’re going to tell you more about the best parks where to go, the line up this year, and how Upicnic can help you getting a good spot without you having to worry!



Bryant Park

Bryant Park’s Movie Nights  is one of New York’s most celebrated summer traditions. Because this is probably the most popular one, and it’s right in the middle of Manhattan we suggest you get there a little earlier than 5pm when the lawn opens. People will literally go running with their blankets open to get the best spot.

If you can’t get out of the office on time, or you just simply don’t want to fight a New Yorker (because they have a way-too-big blanket covering 1/3 or the lawn) you can contact Upicnic to go earlier and save you a good spot. When you get there you’ll have a nice space with a blanket, food and drinks  waiting for you!


The no-nos for this event: No chairs, tables, or plastic ground coverings (including sheets, tarps, bags, or pads) and no dogs on the lawn. And remember: all bags, briefcases, and backpacks are subject to inspection. Movies start at sunset, typically around 8-9pm.

The line up this year (2018) is:

June 18: The Breakfast Club

June 25: The Philadelphia Story

July 2: A League of Their Own

July 9: Little Miss Sunshine

July 16: Fried Green Tomatoes

July 23: The Princess Bride

July 30: When Harry Met Sally…

August 6: The Wiz

August 13: Thelma & Louise

August 20: The Terminator

McCarren Park

If you live in Brooklyn and there’s no way you’re going to Midtown, McCarren Park’s Summerscreen is for you! In addition to the movie, there’s also a live show before the movie starts, and you’ll get at least one Wes Anderson movie on the line-up. Oh, the Brooklynite's dream!

Doors at 6pm, Music at 7pm and movies at sundown (around 8-8.30pm).
Unlike Bryant park you can bring chairs and DOGS!

Don’t forget Upicnic can save you a spot with blankets, food and drinks if you can’t make it early enough!

The line up this year (2018) is:

July 11: Jawbreaker

July 18: When Harry Met Sally

July 25: Love & Basketball

August 1: Hackers

August 8: Fantastic Mr. Fox

August 15: Die Hard

August 22: This Is Spinal Tap

August 29: Audience Choice (you can vote here!)
