Free French flick ‘Band of Outsiders’ in Washington Square Park

BY THE VILLAGE SUN | The skateboarders have been bumped from in front of the Washington Square Arch, for one night at least. No, not by the Parks Enforcement Patrol officers — but by Jean-Luc Godard.

Workers rolled out the screen, which would be inflated with the “blower,” in foreground. “It’s like a bouncy castle,” a worker explained of how it works. (Photo by The Village Sun)

Starting at 8 p.m. or 8:30 p.m. Friday evening, “Band of Outsiders” (“Bande à Part”), a 1964 French New Wave crime caper directed by Godard, will screen in the park.

Skateboarders were fenced out of the space in front of the arch, so that it could be used for the projection area for the movie. Seating for moviegoers would be south of the fenced-off area. (Photo by The Village Sun)

The free movie is courtesy of Films on the Green, a series of free French films in New York City parks. The series will show movies in other Downtown parks over thes summer, including Tompkins Square Park on July 1 (Touché pas au Grisbi”), Seward Park on July 8 (“Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress”) and July 15 (“The Class”).
