Tribeca Festival Borough to Borough Screening Series: James and the Giant Peach

This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.

Inspired by Roald Dahl's beloved children's book, a young boy named James gains possession of some magic crocodile tongues after the daring rescue of a spider from his cruel aunts. When he accidentally spills them in the garden, out sprouts an enormous peach. Inside he finds a group of human-sized bugs who help him escape his bleak home life and confront his sorrowful past in the midst of a magical odyssey.

Bring your own blankets or chairs to relax in socially distanced pods! Screenings will be held in the open field behind the Astoria Park Parking Lot. Line will form parallel to Shore Blvd. Parking is available at the Astoria Park Parking Lot. 

About Astoria Park

19 19th St., Astoria

Astoria, NY

    Widely known for its beautiful pool, the oldest and largest in the city, Astoria Park offers more than aquatic pleasures. Outdoor tennis courts, a track, a bandstand, multiple trails, basketball courts, and playgrounds lure visitors from the five boroughs and beyond. Sitting on the edge of the East River and resting between the Triborough Bridge and Hell Gate Bridge, the park offers shoreline sights and sounds that make the benches along its perimeter popular spots year-round.
