One of the best gifts of an NYC summer is all the free outdoor film series you get to choose from on any given night. If you aren’t the type to pencil in the ones you want to see, though, it’s easy to miss out on your favorite cult classic on a big screen, the stars overhead, friends and a picnic spread around you.
So we’ve created a printable calendar of all the outdoor films in Brooklyn in August, ready to download here, print and keep on your fridge or at work. Brooklyn Bridge Park is celebrating its 20th anniversary with a selection of films that were rained out in previous years, or audience hits, and are getting a second screening, starting off the month with Spike Lee’s semi-autobiographical Crooklyn. Rooftop Films is visiting its regular haunts, considering one of its locales is Green-Wood Cemetery. Red Hook Flicks is bringing back classics like Boyz n the Hood, especially worth revisiting this year in light of Director John Singleton’s untimely passing. Sadly, there is no SummerScreen in Williamsburg this season, but there are so many other options for starry screenings this month, and we hope our calendar helps you catch more than one.
