Summer in New York City means outdoor movies galore. Tonight the Bryant Park Summer Film Festival hosts a screening of the 1959 classic Suddenly Last Summer. Featuring greats like Elizabeth Taylor, Katharine Hepburn, and Montgomery Clift, the film is a Gore Vidal adaptation of Tennessee Williams’ psychodrama. What better suits a carefree summer evening than a plot concerning Euro-trip drama and the threat of lobotomy? Bring a blanket, snacks and some friends to midtown for some genuine American thrill-inducing cinema. After all, watching a Southern Gothic film after dark in Manhattan is practically out of a movie itself. The lawn opens at 5 and films begin at thirty minutes past sunset, exact times vary.
