In New York City, free outdoor movie screenings rule the summer. Not only do they provide a night of gratis entertainment, they offer the chance to see new films and old classics with breathtaking sights like the Brooklyn Bridge and the Lower Manhattan skyline as backdrops.

Cinephiles will love this summer's offerings, which include everything from recent blockbusters like American Hustle and cult classics likeHeathers to new flicks such as Happy Christmas.

Below is a schedule of free film screenings throughout the City, primarily organized by day of the week. Unless otherwise noted, all take place outside and start at sundown. So grab a blanket, bring some snacks and enjoy cinema in the open air.

Many series have yet to announce their programs, so check back frequently for updates.
