55 Water Street
New York City, New York

Join us beneath the stars in Downtown’s newest waterfront rooftop park for our feature presentation of the Frank Capra classic comedy, Mr. Deeds Goes to Town. Starring Gary Cooper, this film tells the story of a simple small-town man, Longfellow Deeds, who inherits a fortune and encounters people who want to use his money for their own aims. He is able to fight all of them off until a scheming journalist (Jean Arthur) comes on the scene. Preceding the feature join us for short films by New York-based filmmaker Jem Cohen. Little Flags was filmed on the streets of lower Manhattan during a patriotic victory parade and NYC Weights and Measures opens with the 1998 ticker-tape parade held for astronaut John Glenn upon his return to Earth and, like a floating, drifting piece of ticker tape, the film then makes its way across boroughs and time to explore New York City's many moods, from loud and relentless to grave and dreamy.
