One of the most beloved traditions of the New York summer are its free outdoor summer cinemas. If you are from June to August in New York, a good plan for an afternoon is to enjoy the atmosphere and the film with an eminently local audience. The normal thing is that people go to take place at the 5-6 in the afternoon with a towel or blanket and dinner, and that the movies begin as soon as night falls (on the 8-9 in the afternoon)

As you can see, sometimes movies are repeated, but the offer is very varied and for all tastes. Next, we will try to make a compilation of the main summer theaters that are offered for free in New York in the 2018 year.
