The weather is warming up, the days are getting longer, and you may want to linger outdoors a little bit more to enjoy it all. Thankfully Supercollider, the cafe and bar at 609 4th Avenue between 17th and 18th Streets — which is celebrating its first anniversary this month, see more on that below — is bringing back its backyard movie nights starting June 8.

Movies screen outside at 8pm, unless it’s raining, in which case the movie is called off. Admission is free, and some of the films will be for sale after the screenings. This month, there are some themes: Sunday is “Girls,” Monday is “Overlooked Foreign Films,” and Wednesday is “Not on Netflix.” And here’s the lineup:

June 8: My Summer of Love (2004) – A spirited local girl finds herself drawn into the lush fantasy world of a prep-school rebel, but what started as a magical adventure soon becomes a dangerous friendship.
