Join NYC Parks and the New York City Mayor's Office of Media and Entertainment for a free film! Celebrate Throwback Thursdays with us this July and August with our 90’s Edition of the Tony Dapolito Rooftop Movie Festival!
When young newspaper sellers are exploited beyond reason by their bosses, they set out to enact change and are met by the ruthlessness of big business in this musical about the Newsboys' Strike of 1899. Rated PG-13. Bookmark this movie screening on Eventbrite: https://tonydapnewsies.eventbrite.com
To commemorate the 118th anniversary of the Strike's inception on July 20, 1899, this event will feature a special musical performance from AfterWork Theater's Sing Out program.
