Free Outdoor Movies in NYC Summer 2018: A Schedule

You can watch a free movie outdoors in New York City every night this summer from now on — and whole movie series every weeknight except Tuesdays. The movies vary widely: current blockbusters (“Black Panther” on Coney Island) and new releases (“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” on Pier 63 in Chelsea), movie musicals (“West Side Story” and “The Wizard of Oz”  in Prospect Park and “Hair” in Central Park), family fare, cult favorites, classics, art films and foreign films.. Below are the schedules for movie nights in some specific parks, piers, and plazas, as well as a beach, a battleship, and an island. Each movie series is linked to its website for more details.
