Free movies are back for another season at the dazzling United Palace theater in Washington Heights, and the second screening of 2023 is almost here.
"When Harry Met Sally..." is the next show at this year's "Movies at the United Palace," featuring a total of six films set in New York City and chosen by songwriter and actor Lin-Manuel Miranda, a friend and patron of the landmarked venue.
The romantic comedy is scheduled for Monday, May 22 at 7pm, followed by a talk with Miranda and actor Billy Crystal.
Free tickets can be reserved starting on Monday, May 15 at 9am.
Other confirmed screenings this year include "The Devil Wears Prada" and "If Beale Street Could Talk" (plus two others), with dates and special guests to be announced.
The free series, sponsored by the Miranda Family Fund and New York Presbyterian Hospital, also provides a unique opportunity to see the theater's spectacularly decorated interior up-close.
Built in 1930, the United Palace was one of five Loew’s “Wonder Theatres" and includes a 3,000-plus-seat auditorium.
