Highlighting Socrates as a public community space for enjoyment and celebration of many cultures, our Outdoor Cinema international film festival is unique with its emphasis on foreign films, pre-movie music and dance performances, and cuisine from each film’s country of origin.

Presented in partnership with Film Forum and in collaboration with Rooftop Films.
