THE SKINT'S 2011 FREE OUTDOOR SUMMER MOVIES GUIDE

Here it is: the skint's 2011 Free Outdoor Summer Movies Guide! Check out our complete guide to FREE al-fresco film screenings under the evening skies of NYC. With nearly two dozen rooftops, parks, and piers presenting free feature films, there's an outdoor movie practically every night of the week from now through the end of October.

From Hudson River Park to Coney Island to Staten Island, from Socrates Sculpture Park to the Intrepid, and nearly everywhere in between, casual movie-goers and film-buffs alike can enjoy a variety of Hollywood hits and foreign films this summer...and experience the cityscape in each of the boroughs.

This summer's screenings include blockbuster hits from the '80s, '90s, and '00s like Ferris Bueller's Day Off (7/27), Airplane! (8/8), Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery (9/14) and Spider-Man (6/24), alongside French films (Contempt - Le Mépris 7/26), and sing-a-longs (West Side Story 7/21). Plus modern classics (Raging Bull 6/30 + The Godfather Part II 6/27) and kids' favorites (Shrek: Forever After 8/12) make for some great (free!) dates and family nights out.

Be sure to check each venue's website for rules and restrictions (no bags in Bryant Park?!). We also recommend that you bring a blanket, some snacks...and, of course, enjoy the free shows!
