The Central Park Conservancy is hosting its annual outdoor movie series this coming week, and it’s paying homage to a special year: 1980.
That’s the year the conservancy began, and it’s also the year that these five fine flicks made their debut:
Tuesday, Aug 25: Fame (R)
Wednesday, Aug 26: The Blues Brothers (R)
Thursday, Aug 27: Airplane! (PG)
Friday, Aug 28: Raging Bull (R)
Saturday, Aug 29: Superman II (PG)
The movies take place on the lawn between Sheep Meadow and the 72nd Street Cross Drive (Terrace Drive) and start at 8, though the gates open at 6:30 p.m.
