Brooklyn Public Library


Summer of Cinema

I always look forward to summer film events around Brooklyn, many of which are free and outdoors. This summer’s selections are plentiful, and with the adoption of June 30 as Spike Lee Day, in honor of the twentieth anniversary of Do the Right Thing, moviegoers have the spot light. 

Many neighborhood libraries offer free movie nights for all ages, and of course you can always check out a
DVD for home viewing, but free screenings in Brooklyn abound.

Brooklyn Bridge Park’s free outdoor film series, Movies with a View, kicks off on July 9, with a Stolen Summer theme. Summer Screen opens July 8 at McCarren Park, offering classic Gen X fare such as Reality Bites, for free. Brooklyn Film Works, free at Washington Park, offers classic and family-friendly selections in July. At Habana Outpost’s free, outdoor movie series you’ll find NYC-themed flicks—Do the Right Thing screens on June 28, just in time for Spike Lee Day! And Coney Island’s Summer of Horror series offers the main scary feature plus quirky shorts and trailers, and free popcorn, all for just $5!
