In this contemporary version of Annie, the orphan (Quvenzhané Wallis) has a hard-knock life with her calculating foster mother Miss Hannigan (Cameron Diaz). However, all that changes when hard-nosed billionaire and mayoral candidate Will Stacks (Jamie Foxx) takes her in. Stacks believes that he's Annie's guardian angel. But, Annie's confidence and sunny outlook could save Will instead. Rated PG.

Wheelchair softball was born over 25 years ago in the Midwest by a few individuals with spinal cord injuries and lower extremity impairments, who still wanted to enjoy America's greatest pastime. These individuals needed to develop a way of playing that would allow easy maneuverability in a wheelchair and keep the fast pace of softball. Thus, a new game was born and played on hard surfaces, such as a parking lots, with a 16-inch softball, which allows wheelchair players to keep one hand one the wheelchair while catching a softball without a glove.

Come celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) with NYC Parks!

The Commute documents professional wrestler Giant Bernard's 12,000-mile monthly journey from his home in the USA to the ring in Japan. Using an innovative fusion of image and sound, The Commute captures a family man's struggle to balance the brutal and the beautiful.

Attack the Block is a fast, funny, frightening action adventure movie that pits a teen gang against an invasion of savage alien monsters. It turns a London housing estate into a sci-fi playground. A tower block into a fortress under siege. And teenage street kids into heroes. It's inner city versus outer space.

Come celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) with NYC Parks!

Musical Chairs is about Armando, who aspires to be a dancer but whose only way in is as a handyman at a Manhattan dance studio, and Mia, an Upper East Side princess. Though worlds apart, their shared passion for dance promises to bring them together until a tragic accident changes Mia's life forever, and she finds herself wheelchair-bound at a rehab facility, with her dreams of a dance career shattered. Fortunately, Armando has enough dreams for both of them, and when he hears about a wheelchair ballroom dance competition that will soon be held in New York, wth the help of several other patients at the rehab center, Armando organizes an intense training program that will bring them all center stage and in the spotlight.

Enjoy vibrantly danceable live music accompanied by spectacular sunsets over the Hudson River!

River Whyless puts a hauntingly sweet spin on traditional foundations with a sound full of lush harmonies, wide sweeping arrangements driven by dark percussion, and metaphors built of firewood and sap.

Their recent EP, the bands first release since their 2012 debut album, marks a notable evolution in their collective voice. Anderson's voice finds a mark between Sandy Denny's ethereal plea and Crystal Gayle's country swoon. English trad-folk sounds are some of the band's obvious touchstones, putting them in a category similar to contemporaries like Fleet Foxes and Stornoway.

Dissensions can take many forms: a soon-to-be-divorced couple bickering; a brood of misfit animals squabbling; an all-female band debating the very definition of their feminism. With unfailing shrewdness, the following shorts depict various clashes and the intense relationships that trigger them. Sharing a penchant for naturalism and distaste for gender binaries, these clever films are further proof of Swedish cinema’s incredible vitality.

Short Films

  • "I Turn to You", 2015, 15 minutes, directed by Victor Lindgren.
  • "Bath House", 2014, 15 minutes, directed by Niki Lindroth von Bahr.
  • "Pussy Have the Power", 2014, 14 minutes, directed by Lovisa Sirén.

Additional shorts to be added. Please note: Due to graphic language, this evening is not recommended for children.

Programmed by Rooftop Films. There will be pre-screening performances at 7 p.m.; films begins at sundown.

Wheelchair softball was born over 25 years ago in the Midwest by a few individuals with spinal cord injuries and lower extremity impairments, who still wanted to enjoy America's greatest pastime. These individuals needed to develop a way of playing that would allow easy maneuverability in a wheelchair and keep the fast pace of softball. Thus, a new game was born and played on hard surfaces, such as a parking lots, with a 16-inch softball, which allows wheelchair players to keep one hand one the wheelchair while catching a softball without a glove.

Join NYC Parks for free, family-friendly movies in our city's parks!

In this contemporary version of Annie, the orphan (Quvenzhané Wallis) has a hard-knock life with her calculating foster mother, Miss Hannigan (Cameron Diaz). However, all that changes when hard-nosed billionaire and mayoral candidate Will Stacks (Jamie Foxx) takes her in. Stacks believes that he's Annie's guardian angel. But, Annie's confidence and sunny outlook could save Will instead. Rated PG.

Know Before You Go: You should come before 8:30 p.m. to get your spot. Please bring your own picnic blanket or chair, as there is a limited supply of chairs reserved for seniors or people with disabilities. Food is OK, but no alcohol. Reservations are not taken, so space is available on a first-come, first-served basis. All are welcome!
