New York does summer movies in a style all its own. So, too, does the W New York Downtown, which continues its New York in Film summer screening series this month with 1969’s Midnight Cowboy, presented by esteemed director Spike Lee. (New York in Film is a collaboration between the W and the film series Grand Classics.) Fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi and fashion writer and editor Derek Blasberg led the first film of the season, Sweet Charity, in June. Held in the private residential lounge at the hotel, which offers stunning outlooks of lower Manhattan, two screenings of Midnight Cowboy will illustrate the film’s indomitable New York spirit: Lee hosts an invite-only private viewing on July 26, and a public showing ($30) on July 31 features a cocktail reception (7:30 p.m.) before showtime (8 p.m.). Treats—what’s a movie without them?—will include a cocktail bar, ’60s-themed candy and spiced popcorn. 123 Washington St.; 646-281-2540; whotelsnewyork.com/summerclassics.
