those of you that still remember drive-ins, the
Museum of the Moving Image's outdoor film festival

by watching a 14-by-20-foot screen, alongside
close to some 2,000 other moviegoers.
In addition, the cost is free and like the heart
of Queens, each Wednesday evening moviegoers will
get to enjoy a vast array of performances and
ethnic cuisine geared toward the particular movie's
heritage. Check Socrates' Web site for a complete
list of screenings.
Center Out of Doors
of Love: Celebrating The Spirit of The '60s
Lincoln Center is proud to present its 38th season
of free performances of music, dance, and family
events. This year, the focus will be on the music
and culture of the 1960s with such artists as
Pete Seeger, Patti Smith, and Regina Carter.
"Lincoln Center Out of Doors," conceived in 1970,
was inspired by ideas about arts and community
arising from social and cultural changes brought
about in the 1960s. Special events include "60s
Snapshots," in which new works commissioned by
Lincoln Center from dance experimenters Gus Solomon
Jr, Yoshiko Chuma, Merian Soto and Elaine Summers
will be showcased. Check Lincoln Center's official
