Movies With A View has been hosting film screenings by the Brooklyn waterfront for eighteen years. As if a free movie with a spectacular view wasn’t enough, this year the Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy is teaming up with the newly opened DeKalb Market Hall to provide food, beer, and wine to movie-goers.
Some of the participating food vendors will include Cuzin’s Duzin, Foragers Rotisserie, Kotti Berliner Doner Kebab, Pop Cake Shop, and Steve’s Key Lime. Wine and cold brews will be poured by Oak Beverages and Warsteiner. While attendees are welcome to bring their own food, keep in mind outside alcohol is not allowed. Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy will conduct bag searches at the entrance, so don’t try to sneak in any booze.
The season kicks off tonight, July 6, with Mike Judge’s 1999 comedy Office Space. The eight-week long series’ theme this year is “Resistance,” and will focus on “issues of race, gender, protest, and triumph,” an announcement for the film series states.
Each week before the main feature rolls, a selection of BAMcinématek curated short films will screen and tunes will be played by Brooklyn Radio DJs. The New York Amateur Astronomer’s Association will also be on hand with telescopes for stargazers, and Transportation Alternatives will offer free bike valet parking for cyclists.
Movies With a View runs every Thursday until August 24 on Harbor View Lawn at Pier 1. The fun begins at 5pm with food and music, and the movies start at sundown. Check out the full schedule of movies at Brooklyn Bridge Park’s website.
