Speaking of Moonstruck, this week the Central Park Film Festival is screening movies highlighting the different boroughs of the city. Tomorrow night's kickoff film is Working Girl, starring Melanie Griffith as a plucky secretary from Staten Island trying to make it in the business world. The rest of the films: 8/20, The French Connection (a Bronx candy store under surveillance); 8/21, Strangers on a Train (the Alfred Hitchcock thriller); 8/22, Moonstruck (with an introduction by Academy Award winner screenwriter John Patrick Shanley); and 8/23, August Rush (with a performance by the film's Academy Award nominated choir, IMPACT)
The screenings are, rain or shine, at Rumsey Playfield (enter the Park from Fifth Avenue & 72nd Street). The gates open at 6 p.m., and there will be a DJ and free gourmet popcorn; the movies screen at 8 p.m. And here are the opening credits of Working Girl, complete with Oscar-winning song from Carly Simon, that sweep across the New York Harbor.
