returns starting June 30 with a showing of Captain America and continues each weekend thru August 19.

According to the Roosevelt Island Operating Corp (RIOC):
Summer is finally almost here and that means it's time for the island's Outdoor Summer Movie Series! Beginning on June 30th to August 19th, a new movie will be featured each weekend at 8 PM. Don't miss out on the selection of featured movies including Captain America, Grease, Tangled, The Help, The Lion King, and Sherlock Holmes! Along with these exciting movies, there will also be food, drinks, games, prizes, and more! Bring a blanket or chair, sit back, relax and enjoy several fun-filled evenings with the community!
During the May 24 RIOC Directors conversation with Roosevelt Islanders, one resident asked that more diverse movies such as the foreign films shown at LIC's Socrates Sculpture Park be shown at the Roosevelt Island Outdoor Movie Series.

UPDATE 6/24 - RIOC has changed the site of the movies to Southpoint Park. According To RIOC:
Come out this summer and enjoy an awesome line-up of family friendly movies at Roosevelt Island’s 2012 Outdoor Summer Movie Series Event. The free event will take place at Southpoint Park.

Save the dates- From June through August, the following movies will be featured on a 3 story inflatable screen:

July 7th- Grease
July 20th- Tangled
July 21st- The Help

August 11th- Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows

The fun starts at 7 PM, with music & movie trivia. Food and drinks will be available for purchase. Bring friends and family along with lawn chairs or blankets and watch movies at Southpoint Park under the stars. This is an experience you don’t want to miss!

This event is sponsored by the Roosevelt Island Operating Corporation.

UPDATE 7/20 - Received this cancellation notice yesterday from RIOC regarding July 20th showing of Tangled:
Please be advised due to the threat of rain tomorrow evening, the scheduled movie Tangled has been rescheduled for Sunday July 29th at 7 PM at Southpoint Park.

Hey there, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues.
When I look at your website in Chrome, it looks fine but when opening in
Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to
give you a quick heads up! Other then that, very good blog!
