Outdoor movies in Bryant Park has become an NYC institution. Think drive-in for sophisticated picnickers and you’ll begin to get the idea.

For the protection of all attendees of the Film Festival, there are changes to how movie-goers access the Lawn Area (the Lawn and surrounding gravel area).

The gravel area surrounding the Lawn opens at 4:00pm. The Lawn opens at 5:00pm.*

* Entry to the Lawn Area is only permitted at the 6th Avenue side of the park (near the screen).
* Wheelchair access to the Lawn Area is accessible through the ramps at the eastern end of the Lawn. (Ramps are on both the 40th and 42nd Street Allées).
* All packages, bags, briefcases, backpacks, etc. will be inspected.
* There are two entry points on either side of the Fountain (north and south side). Each side will have two entry points: one for those with packages, bags, etc. and a separate entrance for those without.
* Should you leave the Lawn Area, all packages, bags, etc. will be inspected again upon re-entry.

The checkpoints are necessary to safeguard all those in attendance at the HBO Bryant Park Summer Film Festival.
