indieScreen

As previously mentioned, indieScreen, a new movie theater at 285 Kent Avenue (at S 2nd Street) in Williamsburg (on the same block as Glasslands), is expected to open for business officially by the end of June. Before then, the theater will be hosting films for the Brooklyn International Film Festival which runs until June 13th. Check out the schedule at their site. Tonight, Monday June 7th, you can see THE "FLESH CHAPTER 1, ANGLE OF TRAJECTORY", "DISPOSABLE", and "HIGGS, INTO THE HEART OF IMAGINATION". Trailers for all three of those below.

The theater will also be screening films as part of the Northside Festival happening June 24-27.

The 12-rows, 93-seat theater (which has a 17-feet by 8-feet screen) will be accompanied by a restaurant and a full bar, AND will be hosting live music. Their website is still under construction, but there's more info about what they have there and how you can host an event there if you click around enough.

Oh you card, you! I hear the place is quite well done and the screen a good size. Congrats to them for building this. Nice outdoor sign too.

apparently every event that happens in wburg and bushwick now has to be followed with the word 'festival.'
it just makes it sound SO much more legitimate, doesn't it?

Both Northside Festival and Brooklyn Film Festival are legit festivals. Northside has the premier of the James Franco and Todd Solondz films happening in Williamsburg. Solid start to this place.

Best of luck to the new theater. I hope the nonfestival film schedule is posted soon.

Serious make-out festival sounds more fitting.

who owns this theater? Have they done anything else in the city or are they newcomers?

This theater needs to move back to Ohio.

I will never understand why art theaters (which I wish there were more of), ALWAYS have an aisle down the center, thereby removing all of the best possible seats.

Wonderful post and the location is beautiful and elegant in design and information and everything>>> to Favorites
bonnaroo would never do something like put arcade fire up against soundgarden. or strokes vs gaga. thats why these festivals with curfews are not worth going to. you have to miss tons of bands you'd want to see.

Amazing is an enormous understatement. One of the best electronic shows I've ever been to and I've seen well over a thousand concerts. I had no idea Vladislav Delay was as good a drummer & percussionist as he is- fabulous and he kept everything swinging with a very unique style of playing. If you missed this you missed out big time...
