Watch Films Curated by Wes Anderson and More at This Free, French Outdoor Movie Series
We’re a big fan of outdoor film screenings if you couldn’t tell by now.
There’s just something awesome about being able to sneak in a flask and all of the cheap popcorn your heart desires.
Although for this one, you might want to store some rosé in that flask.
“Film on the Green“, a French outdoor film series, is back for its 10th year in a row.
The series will present French cinema through the eyes of 10 different guest curators and some of the best filmmakers, artists, and actors of our time. The lineup features big names like Wes Anderson and Jim Jarmusch.
A full list of the lineup along with the location and guest curator is below, courtesy of TimeOut NY:

BTW this would be a super cute (and cheap) date idea.
Nothing gets a girl in the mood like watching a sexy French film with a glass of wine (or 5), trust me.
