E.T.: The Extra Terrestrial
The "Movies with a View" series returns in 2012 at Pier 1 Harbor View Lawn near the Brooklyn Bridge for two months of film under the stars and in front of that stellar view. This year's series runs Thursdays in July and August, and is now actually called "SyFy Movies With a View" (it's sponsored by the SyFy network), though only the July 5 opening film, E.T.: The Extra Terrestrial, falls under science fiction. Yes, that is slightly confusing, but remember... it's free.
Movies include Clueless, Barefoot in the Park, Wet Hot American Summer, Unforgiven, and an audience choice. The movies are all paired with a short film and a DJ. Music starts at 6PM with the movies at sunset. Between this, Summerscreen, Rooftop Films, and a handful of other free film series, there is no shortage of outdoor cinematic entertainment for NYC this summer.
The full SyFy Movies with a View schedule is below.
Movies with a view at Brooklyn Bridge Park (oh poppycock)
The "Movies with a View" series returns in 2011 at Pier 1 near the Brooklyn Bridge for two+ months of film under the stars and in front of the skyline. Kicking off in early July, the NYC-themed series will offer showings as varied as Basquiat and An American Tail, in addition to crowdpleasing favorites like Ghostbusters and Breakfast at Tiffany's. Full film schedule is below, and make sure and vote "for your favorite New York story", to be shown at the final screening, on September 1st....
As you may have seen in the free show calendar, tonight (July 31) is another free event under the Brooklyn Bridge. It's a "movie with a view" to be exact and the night starts with a DJ at 6pm. Then comes two movies at sundown. The headliner is Billy Wilder's Ace in the Hole, but more importantly, the opener is a short movie called "The Deadpool" by none other than sometimes-BV-photographer Ryan Muir.
