Watch classics and soon-to-be classics handpicked by NYC Parks' Arts, Culture and Fun series.

Hollywood, 1927: the silent-film romantic team of Don Lockwood (Gene Kelly) and Lina Lamont (Jean Hagen) is the toast of Tinseltown. While Lockwood and Lamont personify smoldering passions onscreen, in real life the down-to-earth Lockwood can't stand the egotistical, brainless Lina. He prefers the company of aspiring actress Kathy Selden (Debbie Reynolds), whom he met while escaping his screaming fans. Watching these intrigues from the sidelines is Cosmo Brown (Donald O'Connor), Don's best pal and on-set pianist. Cosmo is promoted to musical director of Monumental Pictures by studio head R.F. Simpson (Millard Mitchell) when the talking-picture revolution commences. That's all right for Cosmo, but how will talkies affect the upcoming Lockwood-Lamont vehicle "The Dueling Cavalier"? Don, an accomplished song-and-dance man, should have no trouble adapting to the microphone. Lina, however, is another matter; put as charitably as possible, she has a voice that sounds like fingernails on a blackboard. The disastrous preview of the team's first talkie has the audience howling with derisive laughter. On the strength of the plot alone, concocted by the matchless writing team of Betty Comden and Adolph Green, Singin' in the Rain is a delight. Paraphrase from Swank website.

Space is limited and admission is on a first come-first serve basis.

Located along the esplanade leading up to the recently opened High Bridge, Oh Sit! 14 Sculptors Consider the Chair is a group exhibition of nine artists’ public artworks. In a frantic world, finding a chair can be almost impossible and settling comfortably into one can be an enormous satisfaction. Sitting in the wrong seat can cause anxiety and an even pain. Exhibiting artists Dan Bergman, Allan Cyprys, Robert Dell, Gregoire Ferland, Esther Grillo, Christina Jorge, Siena Gillann Porta, Herb Rosenberg and Chuck von Schmidt respond imaginatively to the notion of sitting or using a chair. Oh Sit! is framed as an imperative, a command—a way of asking the viewer to look and really consider the concept “chair” both objectively and subjectively.

Come to Fort Tryon Park and try something new. Join us on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday mornings for one hour of walking, stretching, and strengthening exercises.

All of our fitness programs are free, led by trained professionals, and suitable for all levels. Wear comfortable clothing and bring water. Please check back for rain and weather/air advisory cancels.

For a breath of fresh air, take your workouts outdoors. Parks are becoming a logical alternative environment for those who want to add variety to their work outs, or who just don't like the gym. And, it's an affordable way to increase physical activity opportunities, because there's nothing special to build.

Exercise with a view, in natural sunlight, with green scenery all around bestows health benefits that can’t be found indoors. Scientific studies have shown that the pleasure of being outdoors for example gives your brain, psyche, and immune system an extra boost.

Please note: Fitness programs are canceled if the weather is lower than 20 degrees and when there are icy conditions. Saturday morning walks begin at 8:30 a.m.

Join us for a lecture titled "Future of Manned Space Flight; Why it's Time to Go Back," by the Amateur Astronomers Association, followed by a rooftop screeing of Star Trek II.

In 1961, Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin became the first human ever to go into space. Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin shattered limits again in 1969, when they became the first people to set foot on a second celestial body. In 2000, the first crew was sent up to the International Space Station. Although we continue to put humans in space, we have not taken a major innovative step forward in this area in over a decade. It's time for this to change. We're in need of the technological and scientific innovations that manned spaceflight provides, as well as a dose of inspiration - to get children believing that they can be the next Neil Armstrong...or Captain Kirk.

Dark Nights, Bright Lights is a new Arts, Culture & Fun series in partnership with the Amateur Astronomers Association. The AAA holds observing and educational events throughout the 5 boroughs, and beyond. Visit aaa.org to find out more and check out their calendar of upcoming events!

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan is considered by many fans to be the best of the Star Trek movies. With assistance from the USS Enterprise crew, Admiral Kirk crosses the path of his old enemy Khan, who was the chief antagonist in the 1966 Trek TV episode "Space Seed". Leading a crew of near-savage space prisoners, Khan insinuates himself into the Genesis Project, which is designed to introduce living organisms on long-dead planets. Intending to harness this program for his own purposes, Khan engages in battle with the Enterprise crew.

Located along the esplanade leading up to the recently opened High Bridge, Oh Sit! 14 Sculptors Consider the Chair is a group exhibition of nine artists’ public artworks. In a frantic world, finding a chair can be almost impossible and settling comfortably into one can be an enormous satisfaction. Sitting in the wrong seat can cause anxiety and an even pain. Exhibiting artists Dan Bergman, Allan Cyprys, Robert Dell, Gregoire Ferland, Esther Grillo, Christina Jorge, Siena Gillann Porta, Herb Rosenberg and Chuck von Schmidt respond imaginatively to the notion of sitting or using a chair. Oh Sit! is framed as an imperative, a command—a way of asking the viewer to look and really consider the concept “chair” both objectively and subjectively.

<![CDATA[Wednesday Night Tours: New York Harbor Ferries, Past & Present]]> http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2015/07/29/wednesday-night-tours http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2015/07/29/wednesday-night-tours Date: July 29, 2015

Learn how New Yorkers got around before the bridges and tunnels, and how ferries are still an important and growing part of our transportation infrastructure.

New York Harbor both binds and separates the cities, boroughs, and neighborhoods that lie along its shores, and for centuries, ferries have helped get New Yorkers where they needed to go. Although bridges and tunnels, marvels of architecture and engineering, now connect the city, an increasing number of people are returning to waterborne transportation, which is opening up new opportunities and creating new challenges for the city’s future development.

From the vantage point of Brooklyn Bridge Park, Andrew Gustafson of Turnstile Tours will explore where the first steam-powered ferries set off, and where the future of New York ferry service is headed.

<![CDATA[Family Capoeira]]> http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2015/07/29/family-capoeira http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2015/07/29/family-capoeira Date: July 29, 2015

Capoeira is a unique Brazilian art form that has evolved over centuries into an exciting combination of martial arts, dance, music, and acrobatics. Some of capoeira’s benefits include strength, flexibility, stamina, overall fitness and confidence. Benefits of capoeira for kids include promoting social interaction and sense of belonging, building confidence, discipline and self esteem, promoting a healthy lifestyle so children become active, and healthy, and develop cultural awareness and tolerance. Wear comfortable clothing.

Capoeira was developed in Brazil, but its history extends to Africa and tribes from Angola. Slaves living on Brazilian Plantations who weren’t allowed to openly practice traditional forms of self-defense developed an ingenious method of disguising their training by combining it with dance-like movements, singing, and the rhythms of primitive instruments.
