This year’s theme: Getting to Know You! Riverside Park’s staff favorites. This film was selected by Park Supervisor Marissa Birmingham. Pack a picnic, bring a friend and settle in for a night of premier movies. Open captioned.

In The Outsiders, two poor greasers, Johnny, and Ponyboy are assaulted by a vicious gang, the socs, and Johnny kills one of the attackers. Tension begins to mount between the two rival gangs, setting off a turbulent chain of events."
