FabToday: Movies Outside

With Hollywood's usual crap smeared over the multiplex these days, some of the best movies are happening outdoors...and best of all, they're FREE:

- Tonight a five-minute PATH ride will take you to Hoboken, where the waterfront Movies Under The Stars will become the gayest spot in town as they screen the cowboy love story Brokeback Mountain. Bring your boyfriend and pitch your tent while overlooking the Hudson and a stunning Manhattan skyline view. Over the next two months, they'll be presenting a stellar lineup of recent releases, including Walk The Line, Rent, and King Kong.

- On the other side of the water, Hudson River Park hosts RiverFlicks, which this week features both Rosemary's Baby (July 12, Pier 54) and March of the Penguins (July 14, Pier 46). Better yet, the popcorn is free, too! Through August, they'll be mixing classics like A Clockwork Orange and Goldfinger with movies featuring Harry Potter and Lemony Snicket.

- For art cinema purists, there's nothing better than Outdoor Cinema, located in the lush grounds of Queens' Socrates Sculpture Park. Tonight is Ingrid Bergman's classic Wild Strawberries; films by Walter Salles, David Lynch, Takeshi Kitano and others continue through August.

- The signature outdoor movie experience in the city remains Bryant Park's HBO Summer Film Festival; next Monday, they'll feature the chestnut musical The Band Wagon, followed in subsequent weeks by High Noon, Charade and Rocky. An annual ModFab tradition, this is an experience no New Yorker should be without.

- At Riverside Park's Film Series, they're going old school with Elia Kazan's immortal On The Waterfront. It only gets better from there, with Show Boat, The African Queen, and On The Town to follow.
