Lower Manhattan has a new destination for movie enthusiasts as Fosun launches The 28 Liberty Summer Film Series within 28 Liberty Plaza. Outdoor movies will be shown free on the plaza every Thursday night starting on July 21, 2016 at 8pm through the end of August.
The series, sponsored by Fosun and Downtown Alliance — collaborators in providing free wi-fi to the area — will feature a different movie every Thursday evening. It kicks off with the Steven Spielberg classic, E.T. The Extra Terrestrial. Other films to be shown include Raiders Of The Lost Ark on Jul. 28, Spaceballs on Aug. 4, and The Goonies on Aug. 11.
Films will be projected on a screen 15-feet high by 20-feet wide in 28 Liberty’s pristine 1.5 acre plaza, which features a signature sculpture by Jean Dubuffet and a sunken garden by Isamu Noguchi. Free popcorn will be provided to patrons and food will be available for purchase from on-site vendors.
