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:

Bring an extra thick blanket, that concrete pool can't be too comfortable to sit on for the duration of a feature film.
