"Carol Channing: Larger Than Life," the story of the legendary performer, will be screened at New York City's Tavern on the Green, as part of the Twilight @ Tavern series, Aug. 17.

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.
