Race to the Lawn

Watch as movie goers take the lawn before our screening of Roman Holiday on July 16. People gathered between 4pm and 5pm to line up on the gravel and prepare to claim their spots for The HBO Bryant Park Summer Film Festival Now with Pepsi and presented with Ralph Lauren.

With the announcement that "The lawn is now open," the race begins. It's a short course from edge to center. Blankets are settled and picnics are spread by 5:05pm.

This small ritual has become a big part of one of New York City's favorite summer traditions in the park. You can also watch our video from one of last year's lawn land grabs on Bryant Park's YouTube Channel.
