Catch a Winter Flick in Bryant Park

Bryant Park was the first in town to have an outdoor summer film festival, and now we're carrying the tradition to our winter season.

Put on your snow boots and snuggies and head to the park on Monday nights for the first Citi PondSM Winter Film Festival, produced by Upsilon Ventures. The festival opened with a special Saturday presentation of Happy Feet and continued with March of the Penguins last night. Here's the rest of the schedule...films will be shown snow or shine!

Monday, January 31 - Ice Age 
Monday, February 7 - Blades of Glory 
Monday, February 14 - The Cutting Edge

The 900 square foot screen is located on the west side of the Pond and can be viewed from the ice, the deck surrounding the rink, and winter pop-up restaurant, Celsius. Click here to check out NYC family blog Mommy Poppins' rankings of cold, warmer, and warmest spots to watch from.

To get the complete movie experience, swing by the Film Bites kiosk on the east side of the park (next to the entrance of Celsius) for popcorn and other snacks. And if you need extra reinforcements against the cold, just look next door at the Pond Shop where you'll find souvenir hats, sweatshirts, and blankets.
