Save the Date – Movies With A View returns to Brooklyn Bridge Park in August with FREE outdoor screenings of popular family-friendly films.
It’s called Movies With A View because there’s an incredible view of Lower Manhattan before and after the screenings.
This year’s theme is “Grit”, which reflects the strength and resilience of New Yorkers during these last difficult 18 months.
All the films feature heartwarming, irreverent, uplifting and even hilarious underdog stories that celebrate human perseverance and resilience, and overcoming adversity.
Movies With A View is on four consecutive Thursdays, August 5 to August 25, at Pier 1, Harbor View Lawn.
August 5: Shaun of the Dead (2004, Directed by Edgar Wright)
August 12: Patti Cake$ (2017, Directed by Geremy Jasper)

About Brooklyn Bridge Park
Brooklyn Bridge Park Corporation, known as Brooklyn Bridge Park (BBP), is the not-for-profit entity responsible for the planning, construction, maintenance and operation of Brooklyn Bridge Park, an 85-acre sustainable waterfront park spanning 1.3 miles along Brooklyn’s East River shoreline. As steward of the park, BBP has transformed this previously deteriorated stretch of waterfront into a world-class park where the public can gather, play, relax and enjoy sweeping views of New York Harbor. The self-sustaining park was designed by the award-winning firm of Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates, Inc. and features expansive lawns, rolling hills, waterfront promenades, innovative playgrounds, a greenway, sports facilities and the popular Jane’s Carousel. BBP serves thousands of people on any given seasonal day, who come to picnic, walk their dog, play soccer, jog, bike or roller skate. Brooklyn Bridge Park is a signature public investment for the 21st Century and will be an enduring legacy for the communities, elected officials and public servants who made it happen.
