New York cinephiles will be able to enjoy the outdoors with a healthy dose of French cinema this summer as Films on the Green presents five free screenings of musicals this June and July. The series is a joint effort between the Cultural Services of the French Embassy and the NYC Department of Parks and Recreation. Screenings take place on Fridays at sunset in Central Park, Washington Square Park, and Tompkins Square Park. Included in the series are "The Young Girls of Rochefort" (6/11), "8 Women" (6/18), "Same Old Songs" (6/25), "A Woman is a Woman" (7/2), "Love Songs" (7/9), and "Tosca: The Movie" (7/16).
