50 Great Outdoor Events in Brooklyn This Summer 

Page 5 of 11



Once again, The L Magazine brings you your favorite 80s and 90s movies once a week for the whole summer—plus food trucks and alcohol vendors—starting with Can’t Hardly Wait (for which we can’t hardly... oh forget it) and ending with Speed. Actually, the series ends with an audience vote. Almost our entire editorial staff voted for Heathers, but, you know, you can vote for whatever you want—as long as it comes from a place of sincere nostalgia.
Wednesdays, July 10-August 14, Sundown, McCarren Park, FREE

Rooftop Films
Now in its 17th year, this film series will once again bring movies to outdoor venues around the city all summer long. Movies include sneak peaks at buzzy indies—Kings of Summer, Drinking Buddies, Ain’t Them Bodies Saints—plus hot docs (Towheads, Bending Steel, etc.), short-film programs and more. Venues include the roofs of the Old American Can Factory in Gowanus and Industry City in Sunset Park, plus spots in Williamsburg, Downtown Brooklyn, Red Hook, Clinton Hill, Coney Island and Fort Greene.
Through August 17, Various times and locations and prices

Syfy Movies with a View
Since most of us aren’t wealthy enough to summer elsewhere or even take one of these “vacations” people keep talking about, we’re stuck in New York for the hot months, which is why we’re grateful for this screening series: each film will be set in a different city—8 Mile, Vertigo, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, etc.—allowing us to travel the world vicariously, one week at a time Good enough.
Thursdays, July 11-August 29, Brooklyn Bridge Park Pier 1, Sundown, FREE

Friday Movie Night at Narrows Botanical Gardens
Almost 20 years ago, neighborhood residents turned a neglected stretch of Bay Ridge greenspace into one of the prettiest darn small parks in the borough. Some Friday evenings in summer, they set up a big white screen on their big lawn and show old movies. The schedule isn’t out yet, but keep an eye out.
Fridays, Narrows Botanical Gardens, Sundown
