The films will be projected onto a screen 20 feet high by 40 feet wide -- big enough to be seen from practically any spot in the park. All films begin at dusk (usually between 8 pm and 9 pm), but the lawn opens at 5 pm for blankets and picnicking (you can line up on the edges of the lawn starting at 4PM). Get there early and stake out a spot if you want a great view. While you wait for the feature presentation, enjoy classic animation courtesy of Warner Bros.
Snacks, meals, and refreshments will be available at Bryant Park food kiosks and restaurants. Free bicycle parking is also available in Bryant Park at 6th Avenue and 41st Street. No chairs, tables, dogs, or plastic tarps are allowed and all packages and bags will be inspected.
