Did you become interested in learning more English by watching American and British TV programs and attending movies (cinema)? Here in New York City during the summer months, you will find many opportunities to see FREE movies, usually outdoors, often in a park.

For example, Bryant Park screens a number of classic movies on Monday evenings. This beautiful midtown green space is located directly behind the New York Public Library (itself an enjoyable place to visit on a rainy day).

In Brooklyn, just across the East River from New York English Academy, is Brooklyn Bridge Park, one of New York’s newest parks. Movies will be shown Friday evenings in July and August.

Later in the summer, every day from August 25 to 29, beginning at 8:00 PM, you can watch movies with a New York City origin. These are presented in the section of Central Park known as the Sheep Meadow. (Don’t worry, the sheep have not been there for over a hundred years!)

These are just a few of the activities that can be enjoyed for free in the Big Apple over the summer. Students at NYEA can learn about many other opportunities like these.
