Mark your calendars, dear readers, because SummerScreen is back for another season. Yes, Williamsburg’s biggest and—you know, why not just say it— best outdoor film series is taking over McCarren Park once again to bring you a free film every Wednesday all summer long starting on July 10. This year, just like every other, you’ll find us at the corner of Bedford Ave. and N.12th St, right next to the tennis courts. Our ankles will likely be bare, and we will definitely have a can of beer in one hand and some delicious local foodstuff in the other. We’d recommend getting there early; doors to the park open at 6:00pm, bands go on at 6:30pm, and films start at sundown. This year, Todd P will be curating the SummerScreen music lineup on behalf of SHOWPAPER; updates to come!
And because we’re such big fans of the democratic process, we’re letting you, yes you, choose the sixth and final film of the 2013 SummerScreen series. We’ve chosen a list of nominees, and you’ll have the chance to vote for the one you’d most like to screen in front of 5,000 of your closest friends and neighbors. Let’s take a look at the contenders, shall we? This year, you can choose from Mallrats, The Neverending Story, High Fidelity, The Breakfast Club, The Big Lebowski, Heathers, and Scream.
To cast your vote for the film you’d most like to see, visit our Facebook page and make your voice heard. The winning film will be announced on Wednesday, August 7th, and will screen on Wednesday, August 14th. But, wait, before you do that, grab a pencil because we have the rest of the summer lineup right here:
Can’t Hardly Wait
Pee Wee’s Big Adventure
