August 1, 2022 at 8:00 pm

Bring a blanket and sit on the lawn to enjoy great food, friends, and a feature film. Bryant Park Movie Nights are presented by Paramount+ with support from Vulture.

The lawn opens at 5pm for picnicking, and film begins at 8pm.

Staring Patrick Stewart and directed by Jonathan Frakes. (1996)

The Enterprise and its crew follow a Borg ship through a time warp to prevent the Borg from taking over the Earth in a past era. Stuck in the past, Geordi La Forge (LeVar Burton) aids a pioneer of space travel (James Cromwell) in his efforts to create the first warp drive while Capt. Picard (Patrick Stewart) and Cmdr. Data (Brent Spiner) battle the Borg Queen (Alice Krige) as she tries to secure the Enterprise.

Food + drink

Hester Street Fair brings the city’s best vendors to the Fountain Terrace every movie Monday, 4pm-8:30pm.

Starting 5pm, stop by our wine and beer area at the back of the lawn for summer-ready drinks, featuring special offerings from Stout NYC.

Tents with food and merchandise in Bryant Park's Fountain Terrace packed with people browsing and buying at the popular Movie Nights.
The Lawn

Get your blanket ready: the lawn opens 5pm! The gravel area surrounding the lawn opens 4pm.

  • If the lawn is very wet from rain, it will most likely be closed, but the movie will go on.
  • If raining, the movie could still go on, depending on severity of weather, but the lawn would be closed.
  • In both cases, you may sit in chairs in the gravel area (first come first served). If you bring a chair you can set it up elsewhere in the park.

There are no rain dates for movies, so we don't like to cancel! We will not announce weather cancellations until the afternoon day of the event. Follow our social stories and tweets @bryantparknyc for updates.
