Outdoor Movie Night – Sister Act (PG)

July 9, 2017 @ 8:30 pm

Join us as we watch a movie classic – Sister Act! When lounge singer Deloris Van Cartier (Whoopi Goldberg) sees a horrible crime committed she is relocated for her protection to a convent. There she is disguised as a nun and brings laughter to the quiet convent and turns the choir into a uplifting group that gains widespread attention!

In celebration of our 25th anniversary many of this summer’s featured films will take us back to the year 1992!  Whether a classic favorite or a recent blockbuster, Randall’s Island Park is an amazing place to take in a flick.  Outdoor movie nights are presented in partnership with the NYC Parks Department.
