SummerScreen (you know, like sunscreen) is The L Magazine's addition to the already successful summer of McCarren Park Pool events.
The outdoor film series will take place every Tuesday (starting next week) through the end of August. The films start at sundown, and before that...there are bands! Oh, and it's free.
Here's the schedule:
July 25: Do the Right Thing (Spike Lee, 1989) with the Cold Hands Collective
August 1: Bottle Rocket (Wes Anderson, 1996) with the Todd Sickafoose Group
August 8: The French Connection (William Friedkin, 1971) with Todd Reynolds
August 15: The Swimmer (Frank Perry, 1968) with Bora Yoon
August 22: Love Streams (John Cassavetes, 1984) with Elliot Sharp
August 26: Style Wars (Chalfant & Silver, 1983) -- Special Saturday night closing party, with DJ Spooky
Bring an extra thick blanket, that concrete pool can't be too comfortable to sit on for the duration of a feature film.
