The Queens Drive-In is a drive-in movie theater in the parking lot at the New York Hall of Science in Flushing Meadows Corona Park, Queens.
This is a co-presentation of the Museum of the Moving Image, Rooftop Films and the New York Hall of Science.
We should thank Queens Borough President Sharon Lee, NY City Council member Francisco Moya and Jimmy Van Bramer, and NYC Parks for making this happen.
This is love in the time of Coronavirus. We love New York!

Cecilia Aldarondo, USA, 2019
Through shard-like glimpses of everyday life in post-Hurricane María Puerto Rico, Landfall examines a ruined world at the brink of transformation, spinning a cautionary tale for our times.
Preceded by “Para Gregorio” (For Gregorio) by Cristobal Guerra, USA, ¡Boricua!
The director is doing Q&A after the movie at 10pm. Aldarondo is something: a 2019 Guggenheim Fellow, 2017 Women at Sundance Fellow and more. She’s the Assistant Professor of Art at Williams College in Williamstown, Massachusetts. ¡Boricua!

Born in Flames

Lizzie Borden, USA, 1983
