Astoria Park Alliance will present a box office smash hit Bohemian Rhapsody as the third annual spring movie screening in Astoria Park.
A limited amount of FREE popcorn will be distributed.
The movie will be screened on the great lawn of Astoria Park overlooking the sunset across the East River and is scheduled to begin at sundown, which is generally around 8:15 pm. Moviegoers are encouraged to bring their own blankets and picnics for the movie night that's turned into an annual tradition for the Astoria Park Alliance.
Attendees are encouraged to RSVP on Facebook.
This biopic follows the life of Freddie Mercury, lead singer of the British rock band Queen, as he rose to stardom. This film features the iconic rock music of Queen and an Oscar-winning performance of Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury.
"APA Presents Movies Under the Stars" was born out of a desire to schedule a screening for the late spring, when the weather's comfortable and the event calendar is less occupied. A weekend evening was specifically targeted along with a title that would be appealing to an adult audience.
For years, we have admired and helped promote the July - August Monday night movie series that Central Astoria LDC has sponsored and hosted in Astoria Park. The Alliance hopes to replicate the old-time drive-in-without-the-drive neighborhood feel that brings a magical sensation to the park.
The Astoria Park Alliance is able to offer free public programming to the community thanks to generous donations made through PayPal on our website and at our fundraisers.
