Instead of being in a historic building or a modern architectural feature, it’s aboard a legendary aircraft carrier that was in World War II, the Vietnam War and was used for space mission recovery!
While it’s always cool to visit, they have some great events in the calendar — one of them being their free summer movie nights atop the aircraft carrier’s massive flight deck with awesome views of the Hudson and skyline.
To celebrate the Intrepid’s own 40th Anniversary, the series features classic films celebrating their own 40th anniversary as well!
Friday, May 27 is the first night, when you’ll be able to watch the classic Cold War action thriller “Crimson Tide” right under the stars.
Here’s the schedule for the rest of the summer:
Friday, June 24: E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial
Friday, July 29: Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan
Friday, August 26: Blade Runner
You’re welcome to bring your own food and (non-alcoholic) drinks, plus light concessions will be sold on site.
Doors open at 5 p.m. for the museum’s Free Friday series, which allows guests to visit the ship for free, and last entry is at 8:30 p.m.
Movies themselves begin at sunset and seating is first come, first served. Guests can bring bring lawn chairs, picnic baskets and blankets to sit on. Find out more on the Intrepid website here.
