Join NYC Parks and the New York City Mayor's Office of Media and Entertainment for a free film!

A group of teenagers finds a map leading to a hidden treasure. They must overcome booby traps, natural obstructions, and a gang of desperate thieves in their race for the loot. Rated PG.

Grab a blanket and come enjoy a movie in a neighborhood park or playground! This summer, NYC Parks will host family-friendly movie showings across the five boroughs. Movies begin at dusk. This event is FREE and open to the public, but seating is limited.
