</URL>How many of us have enjoyed food, friends and films in this midtown setting over the years? Snacks, dinner and drinks are also part of the scene, which begins when the lawn opens on Monday nights at 5 p.m. Check the website for the movie lineup, expected soon, and the rules (no dogs on the lawn, for instance).

Film Forum: Come back soon

“Rendez-vous in July”

Tickets: $15 ($9 for members)

This summer, after theater reopens

Film Forum

209 West Houston Street

</URL>The theater’s under construction, and the official word on the anticipated return — “re-opening this summer” — is a tiny bit vague. But those who love heading to Houston Street for their film fix have no choice but to be patient. The renovations will bring about a fourth screen, new seating and an anticipated $6 million worth of improvements. Not bad for a singular film institution, which began with 50 folding chairs almost 50 years ago. Up first after the reopening: Jacques Becker’s “Rendez-vous in July,” part of a 15-film festival dedicated to Becker’s work.

MoMA movie magic

11 West 53rd Street

</URL>You could spend Independence Day with “Psycho,” thanks to the Museum of Modern Art’s latest celebration of the works from filmmakers Alfred Hitchcock and Francois Truffaut. Others in the series, which runs throughout June: “Rear Window,” “To Catch a Thief” and “Jules and Jim.”
