Brooklyn Bridge Park announces its outdoor film-screening lineup
On the lineup for Syfy Movies with a View: Hitchcock, Ferris Bueller, Willy Wonka and more.
Wed Apr 24 2013
Even though it doesn't quite feel like summer in New York City yet—heck, it barely feels like spring in New York—our favorite warm-weather cultural programming is definitely on its way. Last week, we brought you news of SummerScreen and Rooftop Films' upcoming series; SummerStage announced its full lineup earlier this week; and today, Brooklyn Bridge Park released the schedule for its popular Syfy Movies with a View outdoor film series. (It's even popular with celebs—last summer, Amy Poehler and Paul Rudd showed up to a viewing of the cult classic Wet Hot American Summer, in which they both starred, and really, do you need more incentive to check this out?)
The popular alfresco event kicks off on July 11, with a showing of Ferris Bueller's Day Off; throughout the summer, you can also see flicks like Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (the 1971 version, not Tim Burton's oddball adaptation), Roman Holiday, 8 Mile (?!?) and Vertigo. The season-ender on August 29 is open for public vote, with Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and Lost in Translation among the contenders.
Screenings happen every Thursday around 6pm, and the full lineup is below.
July 11: Ferris Bueller's Day Off
July 18: Enter the Dragon
July 25: Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory
August 1: 8 Mile
August 8: Roman Holiday
August 15: Rocky
August 22: Vertigo
August 29: TBD based on public vote; options are Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Lost in Translation and Good Will Hunting
