The Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment and The New York Times launched the first-ever “ONE FILM, ONE NEW YORK” campaign to get New York City to unite around one great film. Times chief film critics A.O. Scott and Manohla Dargis chose five great films all shot in New York City, and they had you vote for the one film we’ll all watch together! The nominees were: On the Town, starring Gene Kelly; New York, New York, with Robert De Niro and Liza Minnelli; Crooklyn, directed by Spike Lee; Desperately Seeking Susan starring Madonna; and The Wedding Banquet, directed by Ang Lee.
The Quad is proud to participate in this citywide program and will screen the winning One Film title, Crooklyn, on September 13 at 6:50pm—for free! Tickets will be available at the box office an hour before showtime, with first-come, first-serve seating. We will offer one ticket per guest.
