This summer, the Sunnyside Shines Business Improvement District is bringing outdoor movies at both Noonan Playground (Greenpoint Avenue and 43rd Street) and Torsney/Lou Lodati Playground (Skillman Avenue and 42nd Street).
Inspired by the story of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, West Side Story follows the romantic, yet tragic, love story of Tony and Maria. The film, now in the National Film Registry, won 11 Academy Awards.
The screening will take place at Torsney/Lou Lodati Playground and will begin at nightfall (sun sets around 7:30pm) and all is welcomed!
The Sunnyside Outdoor Movie Nights at Lou Lodati Playground and Noonan Playground is made possible by the New York City Council Parks Equity Initiative. Thank you to NYC Council Member Jimmy Van Bramer for the generous grant.
