Movies With a View


That's the name of a free film series that takes place in Brooklyn Bridge Park each summer. Films are screened every Thursday night starting July 7th and running through August 25th. And they're free!

Moviegoers can bring their own picnic or purchase grub and drinks from vendors straight from  Smorgasburg, the largest weekly open-air food market in the country. The food and drink purveyors will arrive at 5 p.m., so get there early to nab a great patch of lawn and stock up on snacks. (The movies begin at sundown.)

Another reason to get there early? DJs will be spinning tunes before showtimes, plus film shorts by local filmmakers will play in the background.

Here's the list of flicks. The final film will be the public's choice, and you can vote online between Back to the Future, Mission Impossible and Mamma Mia starting in early August.


Here's the schedule:

July 7:   Before Sunrise (R, 105 minutes)
July 14:   The Bourne Identity (PG-13, 119 minutes)
July 21:   Crazy Rich Asians (PG-13, 121 minutes)
July 28:   How Stella Got Her Groove Back (R, 124 minutes)
August 4:   Jurassic Park (PG-13, 127 minutes)
August 11:   Thelma and Louise (R, 130 minutes)
August 18:   The Mitchells vs. the Machines (PG, 114 minutes, Family Film)
August 25:   Public Choice with options of: Back to the Future [PG], Mamma Mia! [PG-
13] or Mission Impossible [PG])

Nice selection, if you ask us.!
