Happy summer! I am all about spending as much time outside-both during the day and at night-during the summer months! One fun way to soak in the vibes of the city is at the Brooklyn Bridge Park for their Movies with a View series. Kicking off on July 6th, and running weekly on Thursdays through August 24th, you can also enjoy pre-show music and food offerings begin each evening at 5:00 pm, with the movies screening at sundown.
And this year the Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy is partnering up with DeKalb Market Hall, a newly opened, 60,000-square-foot food hall in Downtown Brooklyn, to bring local, regional, and international food and drink vendors to the park. Some highlights include Kotti Doner, Steve’s Key Lime Pie, Foragers Sandwiches, Cake Pops from Cake Pop Shop as well as beers and wines from Warsteiner and Oak Beverages.
The Conservancy will also welcome back DJs from Brooklyn Radio, who will spin pre-movie music, and BAMcinématek, who will curate short films to be shown before the feature each week. Also returning are the New York Amateur Astronomer’s Association to help stargazers scan the skies, and Transportation Alternatives with their free bike valet parking.
Movies With a View Details
The theme for this year’s eight-week-long film series is “Resistance,” and it will highlight issues of race, gender, protest, and triumph.
