BAFTA New York will once again be supporting the HBO's summer screenings in Bryant Park, continuing the popular 20 year tradition of presenting "stars under the stars”. On Monday, August 6th, the free outdoor festival continues, with BAFTA New York being acknowledged during the screening of the 1938 production of THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD starring Errol Flynn.
Monday evenings at sunset throughout the summer, the HBO Bryant Park Summer Film Festival projects the stars in glorious 35mm onto a screen 20 feet high by 40 feet wide. Bryant Park is located at 42nd Street and the Avenue of the Americas. Snacks, meals and refreshments are available at Bryant Park food kiosks and restaurants. Each presentation will show on Monday evenings starting at sunset. The lawn opens at 5pm. Classic animation provided courtesy of Warner Bros.
AUGUST 6 - THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD (Warner Bros.) Dashing Errol Flynn, sporting plenty of Saxon appeal, leads his band of men-in-tights vs. the Normans and the villainous Basil Rathbone. He still finds time to steal from the rich and give to the poor. Maid Marian (Olivia deHavilland), the pageantry of merrie olde England and legendary Sherwood Forest are all the more glorious in ravishing Technicolor. The stirring musical score is by Erich Wolfgang Korngold. Special thanks to the British Academy of Film and Television Arts New York (BAFTA New York) (1938) 102 Min.
