The lineup for this summer’s movie series at Hunters Point South Park has been set with King Kong coming to the big screen on June 25.

The movie will be the second to be shown in the park this season, which goes from April through September.

The series is being organized by the Hunters Point Parks Conservancy and is being funded by Adrian Lupu, with Nest Seekers in Long Island City. Lupu has launched the website that provides further details on this season’s lineup.

The movies are shown on a 26 foot inflatable screen that is placed near the East River, providing a backdrop with unblemished views of Manhattan. LIC Landing provides the space for the stage and other equipment.

“The Long Island City waterfront is a treasure and an outdoor movie is a great way to bring the community together and enrich the quality of life for all,” said Rob Basch, President of the Hunters Point Park Conservancy, earlier this year.

The schedule is (all starting at sunset):

April 25th – Frozen

June 25th – King Kong

July 23rd – Breakfast at Tiffany’s

August 7th – E.T.

August 20th – When Harry Met Sally

September 19th – TBD (Please send us suggestions – PG Rated)
