Cinema, fresh air, a view of New York – the recipe for a perfect summer evening. Film at Lincoln Center and Governors Island Arts have teamed up to bring this recipe to life.

“Set It Off” (1996) is scheduled to air on June 9 at 8:30 pm about former bank teller Frankie (Vivica A. Fox) who struggles to make ends meet by working as a cleaner in mid-1990s Los Angeles. As a result, he and his friends decide to rob banks.
