Film Screening: All Aboard!

Enlarge

Join Friends of the High Line for the first of three open-air film screenings that glamorously play off of the industrial history of the High Line, which once carried freight trains delivering dairy, meat, produce, and other goods into the warehouses and factories on Manhattan’s West Side.

Paying homage to the history of trains in cinema, All Aboard! is a 28-minute compilation of iconic scenes from more than 100 films, ranging from cinematic classics to modern favorites. Featuring moments of passion, sorrow, humor, and more, All Aboard! shows how station platforms, rail corridors, train compartments, and box cars are so often the backdrop for pivotal scenes in film. All Aboard! was directed by Tony Impavido, produced by Wendy Keys, and edited by Brian Angioletti.

Following the debut at 7:30 PM, the film will be screened again four times, with the last screening beginning at 9:30 PM.
