Bryant Park's "Movie Nights" series started on June 13, marking the second year they returned to the Manhattan greenspace for weekly films since the pandemic started.

Anyone looking to catch a free movie and enjoy the surrounding nature this summer can relax on the lawn in Bryant Park and watch the movies, which will feature the 10 traditional screenings but only on Monday nights.

The June 13 opener featured "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade."

This year marks the 29th season for the series but unlike last year, it will only run on Mondays, with the traditional 10 screenings.

The lawn opens at 5 p.m. for blankets and picnicking, and event organizers recommend visitors be prepared to claim their spot. The films start at 8 p.m.
