Join NYC Parks and New York City Mayor's Office of Media and Entertainment for this free film!

See the movie that started the 1980s dance craze and spawned the Broadway musicial! This classic musical drama stars Kevin Bacon as Ren McCormack, an upbeat Chicago teen who moves to a small town in which, as a result of the efforts of a local minister (John Lithgow), dancing and rock music have been banned. The film also stars Sarah Jessica Parker, Dianne Weist and Chris Penn.

You should come before 8:00 p.m. to get your spot for the movie. Please bring your own picnic blanket or chair. Food is OK, but no alcohol or smoking is permitted.
