Last year, at about this time, I created a simple and subscribe-able calendar for all of the free summer movies in NYC that are screened in parks, on piers, and on the docks of decommissioned aircraft carriers. It proved to be such a hit, that I decided to do it again for 2013.
The calendar can be viewed below, or can easily be imported into your Google Calendar or iCal so that you can have them handy on your phone no matter where you are. My hope is that, some day, these festivals will start to put out feeds like this of their own so that we all don’t have to download separate JPGs, PDFs, and poorly formatted blogger posts for each screening series. (Blah blah open standards blah blah get with the program already people).
Out and about in the city and feel like a movie? Just pop open the calendar app on your phone for a quick look at what movies are playing for free nearby. Most of the summer’s festivals are in there, but I’m still waiting for a few to be announced. Once they are added to the calendar, the feed will automatically update and you’ll always have the most up-to-date listing.
