Wednesday: Movie Night Features Scorsese's "Italianamerican"

Movie Night: "Italianamerican" (1974) —

Wednesday, July 22, 8:30 p.m.
Join Friends of Elizabeth Street Garden for Martin Scorsese's interview with his mother, Catherine, and father, Charles, in this short documentary filmed in the couple's Elizabeth Street apartment. As the Scorseses prepare dinner, they talk about their experiences as Italian immigrants, among other things. (Stay through the credits to get Catherine's recipe for her starring sauce and meatballs.)

Movie Nights are free, family-friendly events where neighbors can come out and meet one another for a great time. The Garden will remain open through the evening, so come early, cool down, bring a blanket, picnic, cozy up and sink in!
