It's nearly outdoor movie season (timed perfectly every year to begin when the first mosquito makes an appearance) and Northside Media has just announced this year's SummerScreen movies—it's got upper management written all over it. Provided you enjoy films that are eminently quotable and/or star a young Jennifer Lopez, the lineup delivers—highlights include true masterpiece Mean Girls, Office Space, and Donnie Darko.
Here's the schedule, and remember that on Wednesdays we wear pink:
- 7/5 — Mean Girls
- 7/12 — Office Space
- 7/19 — Donnie Darko
- 7/26 — Selena
- 8/2 — I Know What You Did Last Summer
And it doesn't end there—their Audience Choice will screen on 8/9, and this year you can vote for Beetlejuice, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, Now and Then, Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion, She's All That, and Twister, so you all have to pick Twister. Don't be idiots.
Screenings are held on Wednesdays in McCarren Park in Williamsburg. They're free to attend, but you should RSVP online (click links above to do so) to give organizers a headcount. Doors are at 6 p.m., movies start at dusk, and it's a VERY good idea to get there early. And maybe bring a low beach chair or pillow, because you're just going to be sitting on concrete.
As always, there'll be live music (the band lineup is yet-to-be announced) along with food trucks, booze, and enough cheese and crackers for eight people; this year's sponsors are Showtime, Zico and Sixpoint, so expect a lot of coconut water and Sweet Action on hand.
