Film Works Alfresco: Newsies (1992)

In partnership with Inwood Art Works, MJM is celebrating NYC through the decades in film! Come enjoy an evening film on the grounds of the Mansion. This year's curated film series continues the theme from last year, showcasing New York City movie musicals through the decades. This seasonal cinema series expands public access to professional filmmaking in Northern Manhattan and presents as diverse an array of films as the community it serves. All films are free, and no advanced registration is required. Spanish subtitles will be provided for all films.
