Hair (1979, PG)
Directed by Milos Forman (who died this year), choreographed by Twyla Tharp, and based on the popular Broadway musical of the '60s, this classic comedy-drama tells the story of Claude, a young man from Oklahoma who comes to New York City on his way to joining the Army and strikes up a friendship with a group of hippies in Central Park.
Frisbee Hill — the landscape north of Sheep Meadow (mid-park at 69th Street beside Le Pain Quotidien), which is accessible from the east and west sides of the park at 72nd Street.
