Behind The Scenes: Film Fest Instagram Roundup

We hardly can believe it, but the HBO Bryant Park Summer Film Festival presented by Bank of America is half over. Five of our ten films have been shown, thousands of corn kernels have been popped and eaten, and hundreds of eager fans have rushed our lovely green lawn to claim their spots. Summer, as we know it, is half over. We already feel nostalgic!

To celebrate the weeks to come, let's take a look back at some of your beautiful #bpfilmfest Instagrams thus far. If you like what you see, follow Bryant Park at @bryantparknyc for more shots of events and activities in the park.

It wouldn't be Instagram if we didn't showcase some food, and @manhattanagriculture has us covered with this beautiful spread from Bisska, a vendor at the Hester Street Fair. You can buy similar goodies before the start of each movie. Bonus points for the hashtag displayed on the napkin.
This black-and-white, high-contrast shot is brought to you by @braunxville, who captured the iconic marshmallow man from our kickoff showing of Ghostbusters. See the reflection of the Chrysler Building in the glass of 3 Bryant Park? Pure artistry.

The Bryant Park lawn steals the mis-en-scene in this snap by @devan_ashley. Look at those blades of grass, so green and luscious! We work very hard to keep them that way, so that the lawn can be used to its fullest potential--like being sprawled upon by thousands of movie fans.

@bsalavarrieta (whose first name is Bryant!) knows that Bryant Park has WiFi and outlets, making your pre-film waiting game into a productive work session. Whether you'd like to surf the web, check your email (pictured,) or play video games while hiding behind your parents (also pictured,) we've got you covered.

Ah, young love. Instagrammer @johndolanphotog captured this scene of a couple with the perfect idea for a date night. Whether you bring a sweetheart, a parent, or someone from a town that has outlawed dancing, we hope to see you on Monday the 27th for Footloose.
Kevin Bacon moves from Chicago to a small Midwestern town where he can't believe that rock music and dancing are banned. He meets a girl (Lori Singer) and convinces the town council and the preacher (John Lithgow) to let the prom go on. The songs Footloose and Let's Hear It for the Boy were Oscar nominated. Directed by Herbert Ross. (1984) 107 min. (R) Paramount.

Lawn opens at 5pm
