Free Movies Under the Stars on Friday & Saturday

RIOC doubles the pleasure for movie lovers, this weekend

RIOC doubles the pleasure for movie lovers, this weekend

One of the joys of summer on Roosevelt Island is RIOC's series of free movies shown outdoors in Southpoint Park. But this year's calendar features a rare double-dip with movies lighting up the big screen on Friday and Saturday.

Family friendly fun starts at 7:00 with food vendors and continues until sunset.

As night deepens in what's predicted to be perfect weather, RIOC sends chills down your spine with Close Encounters of the Third Kind, a sci fi classic, on Friday, with Captain Marvel, starring Brie Larson and Samuel Jackson in the lead up to Avengers Endgane, which recently became the highest-grossing film of all time, promising to entertain on Saturday.

It's a great place to make new friends and reacquaint yourself with old ones in a friendly, open environment you don't find often in hyperactive New York City.

Note: This article has been updated with a corrected description of Captain Marvel. It is not an animated movie. Thanks to Jonn Nubian for letting us know.
