One of my favorite NYC things to do in the summer is check out all the various outdoor screenings of movies the city has to offer. It all started with the famous Bryant Park series back in 1994 and now has spread to countless venues across the five boroughs.
This year, summer movies are moving into the fall with the advent of the High Line Film Series. The theme? Trains of course, in homage the High Line's history as rail freight line that served the West Side until the mid-'60s. Last week they showed one of my all-time favorites SOME LIKE IT HOT. And tonight, at the 14th Street passage, they will be showing the Hitchcock thriller STRANGERS ON A TRAIN. Beforehand, there is a screening of a short film that compiles clips of Hollywood films about trains called ALL ABOARD. The fun starts at 7pm, up on High.
