Hudson River Park also starts its outdoor film series, RiverFlicks, this week. Films begin at dusk (generally between 8-8:30pm), there will be free popcorn and beverages available for purchase.

The Wednesday night series features horror flicks (many of which are rated R, so best leave the kiddies at home) and Friday's will see their general audience selections. Kicking things off is probably one of the more popular horror films of recent, The Ring (2002) (which incidentally has a sequel scheduled to hit theaters in November).
