Outdoor cinema in a picturesque setting
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 settle in for tonight's viewing of the multi award-winning epic, Beasts Of The Southern Wild. Set at the time of Hurricane Katrina, this film is vividly poetic and beautifully therapeutic. Faced with both her hot-tempered father's (Dwight Henry) fading health and melting ice-caps that flood her ramshackle bayou community and unleash ancient aurochs, six-year-old Hushpuppy (Quvenzhané Wallis) must learn the ways of courage and love. "There's no trace of calculation, only artistic ambitions and hopes that have come to fruition in the year's finest film thus far." – Wall Street Journal "There's no way you won't be captivated by Wallis...her performance in this deceptively small film is a towering achievement." – Rolling Stone Rating: PG-13. Runtime: 1 hour 31 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.

"Challenging but hugely rewarding."
