Family Movie Night
Gone are the days when NYC Pride was just for adults. Every year there there are increasing activities for the whole family including picnics, events at local museums and the popular Family Movie Night. Head to Christopher Street Pier Pier 45 for a flick suitable for the whole family. Provincetown legend Miss Richfield 1981 hosted last year’s special screening of Disney’s original Beauty and the Beast and the year before the Disney-Pixar classic Toy Story was screened at Family Movie Night. Other family-friendly films that have been shown at past Family Movie Nights include Finding Nemo and The Wizard of Oz.
Doors typically open at 7:30 p.m. and it’s always a good idea to arrive early and get a good spot for the little ones as you’ll want to get up close and personal if Miss Richfield 1981 is back. There’s bound to be special reserved blanket seating (or maybe even reserved sofa seating) for the little VIPs out there. All proceeds benefit Heritage of Pride / NYC Pride and other LGBTQIA+ organizations. The 850-foot-long Christopher Street Pier renovation was completed in 2003 and reopened as a scenic location for the community to relax and unwind. The pier draws sunseekers and friends looking for a spot for to picnic year-round. Parts of the pier will be closed for construction until the upcoming summer but the pier will be fully open in all of it’s glory in time for Pride. Pack some snacks (and perhaps adult beverages for the grown ups) and a big blanket for the whole family. Invite the neighbors, some friends, your niece and nephew and make a night of it! Want to find more outdoor movie events to bring the kids to? RiverFlicks for Kids in the West Village offers a great lineup, like last year’s showing of Moana, Jumanji, Spice World, Karate Kid, Paddington 2 and Coco. What will be this year’s Family Movie Night NYC Pride film? Frozen? The Sound of Music? The Jungle Book? Time will tell.
