Learn about the latest environmental issues at this film series by the riverside

The Solar-Powered Film Series presents free, high-quality films in a relaxing urban setting. From classics from the Maysles Brothers (Grey Gardens, Gimme Shelter) and Mel Brooks (Young Frankenstein) to the latest Academy-Award nominated documentary (Josh Fox’s Gasland), the Film Series gives New Yorkers an opportunity to learn about the latest environmental issues and initiatives, enjoy some of their favorite films in a lovely riverside setting. The entire event is solar-powered, right down to the popcorn-making.
This program would not be possible without the friendship and support of Rooftop Films.

Screenings take place on the blacktop at Solar 1 in Stuyvesant Cove Park alongside the East River. The screenings are entirely powered by solar energy generated from a solar photovoltaic system on the roof of our facility. Screenings are free and kid-friendly.
