Movie at Southpoint Park - July 28th

Christmas in July - Showing July 28th, 9:00 PM

This Saturday night, July 28, 2007, the
Roosevelt Island Operating Corporation will be showing at Southpoint Park National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation originally released in 1989 and starring Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo.

The film was chosen based on
e-mail voting on RIOC’s website based on the theme “Christmas in July” and was chosen over the following 5 films: “Home Alone”; “Miracle on 34th Street”; “A Christmas Story”; “It's a Wonderful Life”; and “Elf”. Personally I voted for “A Christmas Story”.

The showing is open to the public and RIOC has been advertising the showing on its website, signage at Manhattan’s Tramway Plaza, and even on the Red Buses (after the morning rush hour).

The series is a great way to visit with friends and enjoy a fun evening outside with views of Manhattan, Queens and the East River in general.

I hope to file some video about the showing here next week.
