    Junk Car Drive-In to Cruise into Queens on October 4

    New York City is no stranger to a summertime park screening, but a drive-in steeped in past movie-going iconography is certainly no easy find and the "Empire Drive-in" junk car installation might just be the place to find it.

    One Little Problem with "Hugo" (Spoilers)
