RiverFlicks Big Hit Wednesdays: Captain Phillips

Wednesday, August 20, 2014

8:30 p.m.

Heroes and hustlers come together on the waterfront this summer in Hudson River Park! See the Stars, under the stars - watch all of your favorite blockbusters from last year on the big screen, again! This time around, they’re all free. Hudson River Park’s RiverFlicks has all of last year’s favorite big screen hits!

Based on the true story of Richard Phillips, a U.S. cargo-ship captain who surrendered himself to Somali pirates so that his crew would be freed. Captain Richard Phillips (Tom Hanks) and his crew are carrying freight around the Horn of Africa when four Somali pirates forcefully take over their ship, the MV Maersk Alabama.

Presented by CITI.
