Fans of Fox’s hit series “Gotham” won’t have to wait until Monday to enjoy the new season, as they will get a sneak peek into what Bruce Wayne will be up to this fall during a screening at Flushing Meadows Corona Park.
The Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment and the Parks Department have come together to announce free outdoor screenings of “Made in NY” television shows will take place at select park throughout the city before the shows air on television.
As part of the “Movies Under the Stars” program, on Saturday, Sept. 19, from 8 to 9 p.m., there will be a screening of the new season of “Gotham,” which is expected to air on FOX on Monday, Sept. 21, at 8 p.m.
The screening will take place at the Flushing Meadows Corona Park Zoo Picnic Area and is free to the public.
According to the Parks Department, these screenings provide a “unique opportunity to connect New Yorkers to major network shows that are filmed in their communities in a creative setting.”
“Gotham,” which launched its first season last fall, is a prequel to Batman and follows the rise of Gotham City Police Commissioner Jim Gordon.
The show previously filmed some of its scenes on the streets of Ridgewood, where the show’s lead actor, Ben McKenzie, brought his character Det. James Gordon to life in a fast-paced action sequence filmed beneath the Seneca Avenue M train station.
Space for the weekend screening is available on a first-come, first-served basis and attendees are asked to bring their own picnic blanket or chair.
