Along with Franco and Broderick, Billy Joel and Christie Brinkley each chose a movie to be screened at "Films in Tompkins," which will take place on the park's center lawn, according to organizer and local restaurateur Darin Rubell.
“I got a couple of what I would call ‘New York favorite celebrities’ to pick their favorite movies, and this is what they picked,” Rubell said, explaining that he knew some of them personally and had met others through friends.
► July 9: “Dog Day Afternoon,” selected by Matthew Broderick
► July 16: “The Pink Panther,” selected by Christie Brinkley
► July 23: “Big Night,” selected by Billy Joel
► July 30: “Chinatown,” selected by James Franco.
