Hosted by the New York City Parks Department, Central Park Conservancy, NYC Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment and IFP, the free outdoor screening will begin at 7:30 PM. Before the film, director Dori Berinstein (Tony Award-winning producer of Thoroughly Modern Millie) will introduce the film, co-written by Adam Zucker, that "captures the magic and vivacity of the 90-year-old icon – both onstage and off…past and present."
"Carol Channing: Larger Than Life," according to press notes, "is both an intimate love story and a rarefied journey inside Broadway’s most glamorous era. It is, above all, a look at an inspiring, incomparable and always entertaining American legend. The film also includes behind-the-curtain stories from a wide range of personalities that have known Carol for years."
The terrace of Tavern on the Green is located at 67th Street in Central Park. For more information, visit www.nyc.gov/film.
