<![CDATA[Monster Mash-Ups Movie Series: Buffy the Vampire Slayer]]> http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2015/10/10/monster-mashups-movie-series-buffy-the-vampire-slayer http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2015/10/10/monster-mashups-movie-series-buffy-the-vampire-slayer Date: October 10, 2015

Join NYC Parks for free, spoofy horror movies in our city's parks!

For Buffy Summers (Kristy Swanson), nothing is the same after she meets Merrick Jamison-Smythe (Donald Sutherland). Merrick tells the teen that he's been sent to train her to fight vampires, and he proves himself by displaying his supernatural powers. Buffy is a quick study, and soon takes fellow student Oliver Pike (Luke Perry) under her wing, repeatedly saving him from fierce bloodsuckers. But, when a very dangerous vampire (Rutger Hauer) gets rambunctious, she must go to war again. Rated PG-13.

Know Before You Go:

You should come before 6:30 p.m. to get your spot. Please bring your own picnic blanket or chair. Food is OK, but no alcohol or smoking. Reservations are taken for the pre-movie activites only (see link below). All are welcome!

Start time: 6:30 pm
