Summer On The Hudson Picture Show: Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby
There ain't no party like a Gatsby party
Summer On The Hudson Picture Show is all about keeping it simple. Nothing but a large screen, an epic film, and a dazzling sunset as the cherry on top. Pack some popcorn and let Baz Luhrmann transport you back in time to 1922 in his visually dazzling re-imagining of The Great Gatsby. Adapting Scott F. Fitzgerald's original novel once again for the big screen, Leonardo Di Caprio plays Jay Gatsby, a super-rich party animal who possesses a certain willingness to share the good vibes. But the good vibes begin to dwindle, and what follows is a tale of impossible love, incorruptible dreams, and high-octane tragedy that holds a mirror to our own modern times and struggles. "A grandiose, colorful, pleasure-drenched night at the movies." – Slate "A wayward, lavishly theatrical celebration of the emotional and material extravagance that Fitzgerald surveyed with fascinated ambivalence." – New York Times Rating: PG-13. Runtime: 2 hours 23 minutes. Seating opens at 6:30pm and film starts at 8pm. This event is free and entry is on a first come first served basis, so it can't be guaranteed.
