Free Outdoor Film: Hedwig and the Angry Inch

In partnership with Film at Lincoln Center
Jul 1, 2022

Free out­door films on the Parade Ground return to Gov­er­nors Island for sum­mer 2022! Catch John Cameron Mitchel­l’s 2001 cult clas­sic Hed­wig and the Angry Inch on July 1

Screen­ings are free and open to the pub­lic with pre-show enter­tain­ment kick­ing off at 7pm and films begin­ning at dusk. Food and drinks will be avail­able for pur­chase, includ­ing a beer gar­den by Threes Brew­ing along with food from Piz­za Yard, Malai, Ter­ry & Yaki, Kim­chi Taco Truck, and Caripito’s.

Hed­wig and the Angry Inch (2001), direct­ed by John Cameron Mitchell, invites you to rock out! After falling in love with a U.S. Army sergeant, an East Berlin boy named Hansel under­goes a sex-change oper­a­tion so that he can legal­ly mar­ry his beloved. But the oper­a­tion is botched, leav­ing the boy less than a man, but not quite a woman. Desert­ed in a Kansas trail­er park, the boy/​girl, now named Hed­wig, rein­vents himself/​herself as a rock star. Based on the hit off-Broad­way musical.

Evening fer­ry ser­vice will run from Bat­tery Mar­itime Build­ing in Low­er Man­hat­tan, locat­ed at 10 South Street, depart­ing Low­er Man­hat­tan at 5:15, 5:45, 6:15 and 6:45pm.
