The NYC Mayor's Office of Media and Entertainment launched a new program called "One Film, One New York," which posed the question "What if everyone in New York City watched the same film at the same time?" New York Times film critics A.O. Scott and Manohla Dargis chose five films, all shot in New York City -- On the Town, Crooklyn, Desperately Seeking Susan, New York, New York, and The Wedding Banquet -- and let New Yorkers vote for which movie they wanted. Spike Lee's 1994 film Crooklyn was chosen and the film will be screened for free all over New York City on September 13. The movie is showing in one city park in each borough, plus movie houses like Nitehawk Cinema, The Quad, Lincoln Center Walter Reade Theatre, BAM Rose Cinema, Alamo Drafthouse, Sympony Space and more. All screening locations and details are listed below.

Spike Lee said of Crooklyn being chosen:

Crooklyn was written by my younger siblings Joie, Cinque Lee and I,” said Spike Lee. “It's a semi-bio story of our family--the Lees growing up in the pre-gentrified black and Puerto Rican hood of Fort Greene in ‘Da Republic of Brooklyn’ during the early 70’s. More than anything, Crooklyn is a love letter to our long gone mother--Jacquelyn Shelton Lee. Our mom died of cancer of the liver at the too young age of 41, didn't smoke either. Crooklyn was the way we grieved and at the same time celebrated her brief but bold life. The Lee family thanks everyone who voted for Crooklyn; the support actually started May 13th, 1994, the day of its release. Also shout out to the other great films too in #OneFilmNY.
