NEW YORK (July 14, 2022) – Fosun’s 28 Liberty has partnered with the Alliance for Downtown New York and Alamo Drafthouse to present three dance-themed films for Lower Manhattan residents to enjoy under the night sky. The free screenings take place once a month on Wednesday nights at 7:00 PM.
The outdoor movie series, which has been run since 2016, excluding 2020 due to the pandemic, kicked off on July 13, at 28 Liberty’s Fosun Plaza in Lower Manhattan. Films are projected on a screen on 28 Liberty’s South Plaza, which features a signature sculpture by Jean Dubuffet and a Sunken Garden by Isamu Noguchi, and complemented by themed festivities and popcorn before the show. Screenings start at 7:00 PM and Plaza seating opens at 6:30 PM on three Wednesday evenings across the summer and fall this year.
Dancing Under the Stars: Three Movies You Can Move To:
Wednesday, July 13 @ 7:00 p.m. - Dirty Dancing
Wednesday, August 24 @ 7:00 p.m. - La La Land
Wednesday, September 21 @ 7:00 p.m. - In the Heights
Fosun provides seats, and attendees are welcome to bring a blanket to sit on the plaza. Alamo Drafthouse will have popcorn at the ready, and attendees are welcome to bring their own food and drinks. Alamo will also have posters from their own printing press at the Plaza.
“We are pleased to join with Alamo Drafthouse and the Downtown Alliance to welcome back the Summer Movie Series,” said Thomas Costanzo, Global Partner of Fosun and CEO of Four Trees Asset Management. “It is exciting to renew our commitment to bringing the community together through movie nights for the whole family.”
28 Liberty is a historically significant office tower located in the heart of New York City’s Financial District, with modern amenities and direct connection to six subway lines and the city’s mass transit hubs. During the past several years, Fosun has transformed the 60-story, 2.2 million-square-foot class-A office tower through a comprehensive repositioning program.
Other community and cultural events at 28 Liberty include Sing for Hope Pianos, a yearly initiative that gathers local artists to create pianos that will be displayed on the plaza in June and then placed in each borough before being donated to New York City Public schools. It also accommodates the annual arts festival, River to River, which has become a cornerstone of Lower Manhattan culture.
Fosun, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, will continue to uphold its original aspirations of developing its business for good and “Contribution to Society”, actively shoulder more social responsibilities, implement ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) strategies, constantly create value and give back to the society by sharing happiness with one billion families worldwide.
