If you’re looking for a playlist featuring French artists, look no further! From a song about pain au chocolat to Edith Piaf, it doesn’t get much more quintessentially French than this!
"Frontiers are an invention of men. Nature doesn’t give a hoot."
Grand Illusion screening tonight at Riverside Park!!
Happy Bastille Day!!
Who else besides the French would make a movie about a mustache?
Films on the Green is back on this Friday at Riverside Park with the thriller The Moustache:
One day, Marc asks his wife Agnès if he should shave his moustache. She is unsure, as she has always known him with a moustache. He shaves it off anyway, hoping to surprise her and his friends. But no one reacts as expected. In fact, nobody seems to notice at all.
Wishing everybody a Happy 4th from Films on the Green!! Note: There will NOT be a screening this Friday
Quite the crowd for La Haine last friday!
La Haine today at Tompkins!!
This week’s Films on the Green screening features Vincent Cassel in the urban drama and critically-acclaimed La Haine. Get to know Cassel better before the screening by watching this interview with W magazine!
Don’t miss tonight’s screening of the “shamelessly enjoyable” The Women on the Sixth Floor in Tompkins Square Park!
Fun Fact: During a party scene in The Women on the 6th Floor, Fabrice Luchini’s character indulges in dancing with the Spanish women and not being used to dancing, turns out to be a poor partner—a character study for the actor who is actually a very good dancer. Here is a video of him dancing in the film Intimate Strangers (starts at 0:18). The Women on the Sixth Floor is playing in Tompkins Square Park this Friday!
Yet another fabulous screening under the arch! Thanks to everyone who came last Sunday!
Thank you, Jean-Paul Belmondo, for giving us some perspective! Unfortunately, tonight’s screening of Buffet Froid at Washington Square Park is cancelled. Consolation: It will be reschedule for Sunday (same time, same place)!
