Movies Under the Stars: The King and I @ Athens Square

Join NYC Parks, Council Member Costa Constantinides and the New York City Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment for a free film.

Yul Brynner’s magnetic, Oscar-winning performance as the demanding 19th century king of Siam has indelibly linked him with the role. The clash of temperaments between governess Anna and the King culminates with “Shall We Dance,” one of the screen’s most joyous musical moments.
