Dive Bar Documentary


Now that Freddy’s is safely entrenched in its new home in South Park Slope, it might not be long before people begin to forget the bar that bravely stood in the path of the Atlantic Yards project. Freddy’s, a documentary film released in 2010, aims to make sure that the story of the historic bar isn’t lost. The Brooklyn Film Festival selection introduces some of Freddy’s most unique characters, provides a window into what life at the quirky neighborhood institution was like, and hears from the regulars on Freddy’s ultimately doomed quest to stand up against eminent domain. Tonight at 8pm, it’ll be showing at indieScreen for just $6; afterwards, hop the G train down to the recently reopened bar for a taste of the real thing. At 11pm, the monthly Late Night Jazz Jam, featuring the saxophone-led Stan Killian Quartet, will be taking place.
