HELL’S KITCHEN — Celebrate 25 years of the Americans with Disabilities Act Hell’s Kitchen style, with a free outdoor movie and live music Monday night.

The festivities begin at 7:30 p.m in the Matthew Palmer Playground on West 45th Street near Tenth Avenue. Actor, singer and Hell’s Kitchen local Anita Hollander will perform songs from her show “Still Standing,” which tells the story of her loss of a leg to cancer.

The film, "Musical Chairs," will start at dusk. The movie, from "Desperately Seeking Susan" director Susan Seidelman, is a love story, “a romantic tale about two New Yorkers, Armando from the Bronx and Mia from the East Side, and their love of ballroom dancing,” according to a press release.

“Mia is a vivacious professional dancer but a tragic accident forever changes her life. True to his heart, Armando dedicates himself, along with a group of colorful misfits, to help Mia deal with her challenges and dance once more.”

The West 45th Street Block Association, which organized the event, recommends bringing blankets and chairs. Admission is free.
