The HBO Bryant Park Summer Film Festival presented by Bank of America is celebrating 25 years in the park! We're kicking off the Summer 2017 season with a blockbuster, iconic New York City film: King Kong, the first movie shown at the park's festival 25 years ago.

The granddaddy of all monster movies is a variation on the old “beauty and the beast” story. The adventure fantasy about the girl and the giant ape has been remade a few times, but there’s nothing like the original. Kong is captured on tropical Skull Island and brought back to New York for exhibition. Of course, this doesn’t turn out well for anyone and the poor monkey finds himself atop the Empire State Building, swatting at fighter planes. Max Steiner’s music swells, as Fay Wray’s lungs get quite a workout. “Kong” did not win any Oscars for Special Effects, as the award did not yet exist. (1933) 100 MIN. (NR) (WARNER BROS.)

Classic films under the stars on the big screen. Bring a blanket and sit on the lawn to enjoy great food, friends, plus a classic Warner Brothers cartoon before each film.

The lawn opens at 5:00pm for blankets and picnicking. Films begin at sunset (typically between 8pm and 9pm).

All packages, bags, briefcases, backpacks, etc. subject to inspection.
