Bryant Park Movies-how early ?

Does anyone know how early the park starts filling up for the movie? Is it safe to lay your picnic blanket out to save a spot while you run up to Bryant Park Cafe to grab a dinner to go? Are you allowed to carry a bottle of Chanpagne in ?

Thank you!

It starts filling as soon as they drop the ropes at 5PM. No, you can't leave your blanket unattended while you go to get food, you should leave someone there to hold the space or get the food first. Technically you are not allowed to bring champagne in, but everyone brings it anyway. As long as you're not disruptive you're unlikely to have an issue.

Typically, how long are the lines before they drop the ropes at 5:00 pm?

Well behaved discreet tipplers will be fine. That's why you'll see all those red Solo cups.

If it is good Champagne, we may want to share it with you....but we will bring our own glasses (and chips). 😊

Anytime we go to one of these types of events at Bryant Park or Central Park or Washington Square Park we usually bring a picnic basket with a well-paired wine....and we (sometimes) even behave ourselves.

Come and enjoy the Park events.

Depends.

Weather/movie. But if the weather is nice, there is always a good crowd.
