Over the last five summers, SummerScreen has lured thousands of Brooklynites out of their stuffy apartments with the promise of cold beer and classic movies under the stars. This year, we return to McCarren Park with a nod to our adolescent idols and crushes: Cusack, Bowie, Danes, Depp, Richards and Reeves.
Bring a blanket, drink beer, eat tacos and quote “Vaya con dios” with 3,000 other Patrick Swayze fans.
SummerScreen starts on Wednesday, July 7, at the McCarren Park Ballfields (corner of Bedford and North 12th). Gates open at 6pm, films start at dusk. Get there early to enjoy Happy Hour specials and live music.
The McCarren Park ball field is located in Williamsburg at the corner of Bedford and North 12th.
