The films are shown at the northern edge of the Sheep Meadow, in the middle of the park at 69th Street. Screenings are 8 p.m., rain or shine. Gates open at 6:30 p.m., so bring a picnic — but no alcoholic beverages or glass is permitted. There’s a DJ and music to keep the crowd happy until the screening starts.
