(Kuala Lumpur=Koreanpress)  Azmi Anuar = This year, through a partnership between the Mayor's Office of Media and Entertainment and New York City (NYC) Parks, an additional 150 film screenings are taking place at numerous City parks and playgrounds in all five boroughs.

The expansion to the outdoor film series ‘Movies under the Stars’ brings free film screenings to New Yorkers in more parks, many of which are hosting screenings for the first time.

Throughout the month of October, parks in the five boroughs will host family friendly screenings of classic New York films, like The Muppets Take Manhattan, Ghostbusters and The Wiz, and new favorites, like Annie, Mad Hot Ballroom and Enchanted. Additional screenings featuring documentaries, independent films and short films showcasing New York communities will also take place.

“We want all New Yorkers to experience the fun and novelty of watching a film outdoors right in their own neighborhood,” said Commissioner Cynthia López, Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment.

“The films and TV shows that shoot on location in New York City have not only left an indelible mark on our culture; they also employ thousands of New Yorkers behind the scenes and contribute billions of dollars to our local economy.

By bringing ‘Movies under the Stars’ to more parks in all five boroughs, this is our opportunity to thank residents for hosting filming in their community and provide New Yorkers with increased access to cultural programming.”

“We are happy to bring outdoor movies to families and friends in each of the five boroughs and want them to best enjoy the experience,” said NYC Parks Commissioner Mitchell J. Silver, FAICP.

“This year, ‘Movies under the Stars’ will expand to reach thousands of new viewers across the City. We encourage everyone to come watch films in NYC Parks.”

To kick off the expansion of ‘Movies under the Stars,’ a special anniversary screening of the independent documentary Mad Hot Ballroom took place at J. Hood Wright Park on Wednesday, August 19. The award-winning Mad Hot Ballroom tells the story of New York City kids who reveal their fears and dreams and come of age while taking the audience on a most unusual journey of learning how to ballroom dance.

The film’s director, Marilyn Agrelo, and producer, Amy Sewell, were joined by some of the film’s young participants, who are now college graduates and working in an array of professions, to celebrate the film’s 10th anniversary. The organization that inspired Mad Hot Ballroom, Dancing Classrooms, is a social and emotional learning program that teaches children essential life skills through the practice of ballroom dance. Dancing Classrooms serves over 200 schools and 25,000 children a year in New York City.

‘Movies under the Stars’ is NYC Parks’ annual summer movie series. Through this programme, all New Yorkers are encouraged to pack a picnic, grab a blanket, and enjoy a movie in a neighborhood park! Movies are hosted in all five boroughs and begin at dusk.
