    Is the Fast and the Furious being shown on the 11th or the 16th. How to tell which is the correct date?

      It’s being shown on the 16th. You can check the schedule, which shows it’s August 16. The 11th is the date the blog post was published. You can see that all of the blog posts have a date.

        How easy is it to pick up a cab after the film? We are from the UK on holiday and want to see On The Waterfront but are unsure how to get a cab back to Manhattan afterwards. Thanks for your help

        You can easily call a car service to either Valentino Pier or one of the establishments on Van Brunt Street if you’d like to go for a bite or a drink afterward. Try Arecibo: (718) 783-6465.
