Grab a blanket and stock up on popcorn because free outdoor movies in the parks are starting this week: in McCarren Park tonight; Brooklyn Bridge Park on Thursday, July 7; Coney Island on Tuesday, July 11; and Red Hook on Monday, July 12. On tap for week one, respectively: Friday; Manhattan (against a backdrop of the real Manhattan skyline, natch); Saturday Night Fever; and Men in Black. (Also outside, but not in a park, are John Hughes screenings every Wednesday in July at Ortine, starting with Sixteen Candles tonight.) Start time and availability of food and drink vary by location, so check each locale’s website for details on your nearest outdoor screen. Regardless, plan on arriving well before sundown to ensure a good spot, and let us know if you have any notable run-ins.
