HBO NYC preems ‘Subway’ al fresco

NEW YORK — HBO NYC’s vidpic “Subway Stories” is world preeming in an unusual venue: outdoors in midtown Manhattan’s Bryant Park, as part of the free weekly latenight Golden Oldies festival that HBO sponsors every summer.

Shot entirely in New York City, “Subway Stories” is an omnibus featuring 10 vignettes, starring actors like Anne Heche, Denis Leary, Mercedes Ruehl, Rosie Perez, Gregory Hines and Christine Lahti. The directors include Jonathan Demme and Abel Ferrara.

Bryant Park will show it as a freebie on a screen that’s 20 feet high by 48 feet wide on July 29 (with July 30 as the rain date). The movie makes its debut on HBO Aug. 17.

This is the fifth annual Bryant Park festival, which kicked off June 16 with “The Wizard of Oz” and continues every Monday night through Aug. 25. The July schedule is “My Darling Clementine,” “Picnic,” “To Kill a Mockingbird” and “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.”
