The best coffee is free coffee, and if you need a little boost to keep your eyes open during an after-dinner flick, this summer program is for you. 

Gowanus-based coffee roaster Abbotsford Road Coffee Specialists and its new coffee subscription app, CoffeesUp, partnered with Brooklyn Magazine for a caffeine-meets-cinephile Summer Movies Under the Stars running through July and August. Free films, free coffee, does it get better? Movies will screen at Fort Greene Park in July and then in Prospect Park in August under what it's calling Showtime in the Park.

RECOMMENDED: All of NYC's outdoor movies in one calendar

Conceptualized by Karl Jameson, co-founder of Abbotsford Road, CoffeesUp allows coffee lovers to experience 12 specialty coffees per month (3 per week), at $8 per monthly subscription. The goal is to support local cafes and encourage coffee exploration while allowing users to save money. The company will be offering free cold brew samples.

For Brooklyn Magazine’s Showtime in the Park, CoffeesUp and Abbottsford Road Coffee Specialists will host screenings of the following films:

  • Fort Greene Park (July)                                 
    • July 7th – West Side Story
    • July 14th – Selena
    • July 21st – Crooklyn
    • July 28th – Clue
  • Prospect Park (August)
    • August 3rd – Back to the Future
    • August 10th – Ghostbuster (Original)
    • August 17th – Encanto
    • August 24th – Spider-Man: No Way Home
