Consider this Wednesday, August 15 Rex Manning Day, because this week at SummerScreen we’re showing your pick, Empire Records! So pull a Robin Tunney to beat the summer heat and meet us at McCarren!

As a warm-up for your Edwyn Collins love-fest, we have some equally great live music courtesy of Todd P and Showpaper. This week we you can catch bedroom pop wizard Ducktails before the movie, as well as Brooklyn locals Splash and Babies.

If you haven’t already, make sure to reserve your spot in our VIP section. We’ll give you a seat up front and center, plus vouchers for any of our food vendors like V Spot, Cemitas, Little Muenster, Brooklyn Bangers or Pizza Moto. Then, get sugar high on a frosty treat from the Coolhaus Truck with a dessert voucher too. Finally, wash it all down with complimentary beers from Sixpoint Brewery. And after the screening, you’ll get to attend our after party on the King and Grove rooftop, where we’ll have our own rooftop-dance finale. Grab your own Liv Tyler and join us!

We’ll be set up across from the McCarren Park tennis courts on North 12th and Bedford starting at 6:00 p.m. The bands start at 6:30, and the movie will be rolling by 8:30!

And to tide you over until Wednesday, here’s a look at the winner of East River Ferry’s video competition. Earlier in the summer, they asked for videos showing how you interact with the East River Ferry and the neighborhoods it serves. Congrats to winner John Cirrilo, who now gets one year of free travel on the East River Ferry! You can watch his winning submission after the jump.
