HBO Bryant Park Film Festival: On The Town

Movies in the park are what makes summer in the city great, and New York parks have some great ones. From oldies to recent blockbuster hits, a classic musical is always a must see on anyone’s viewing list. On The Town includes the iconic “New York, New York” song, so what better way to watch that incredible number than in the heart of New York City?
