Unfortunately, tonight’s outdoor screening of La Boum in Central Park has been cancelled due to the unusable condition of the lawn after heavy rainfall, and to impending inclement weather.
La Boum will still be available on our virtual cinema platform: https://e-cinema.the25hour.us/cinema/1/6

LA BOUM (The Party)

Vic Beretton is a Parisian teenager with a lot going on in her life. She has her heart set on one of her classmates, and to make her romantic daydreams a reality, Vic needs to make it to a house party, aka a "boum." But that means she will have to get permission from her parents, and with their nonstop fighting, it won’t be easy… La Boum marks the first screen performance of Sophie Marceau that won her international acclaim!

Film in French with English subtitles
