Free tonight in Tompkins Square Park: 'Easy Rider,' freedom

Tonight's free film in Tompkins Square Park is "Easy Rider" with Dennis Hopper, Peter Fonda and Jack Nicholson. (It's no "C.C. and Company," but what is?)



There's pre-film music courtesy of Main Squeeze Quintet.

Of course, all this is weather permitting... If it's a Thursday, then it will rain. Check the Films in Tompkins Facebook page for updates on tonight's screening. Three of the four films have been rained out this summer. Tonight's weather is looking outdoor-movie iffy.

And upcoming...

July 18 — Drive
July 25 — The Big Lebowski
Aug. 1 — Rocky Horror Picture Show
Aug. 8 — Chico + Rita
Aug. 15 — Romeo + Juliet
Aug. 22 — O Brother, Where Art Thou

Why didn't they schedule the films on some day other than Thursday, when it's not so likely to rain? Really stupid planning.

DrGecko,
Does it usually rain on Thursday?

You know what would be better than "Easy Rider"? Almost anything.

It rains a lot on Thursdays since the movies are scheduled for that day. It's all their fault.

After reading all your negative comments on this site, shmnyc, I'm almost to the point of being curious what, if anything, you do like. Nothing I'm guessing.

One of my all time favorite movies. "Nyuck, nyuck...indians."

It never rains on Mondays.

Easy Rider is not a good movie. It's full of platitudes about "the real America" that were embarrassing then and are even worse today. It doesn't even make for good nostalgia.
