You’d think summer might never come, what with this unfortunate springtime chill and day after day of rainy skies. But hey, you know what they say about April Showers? That’s right, April Showers Bring Free Movies. And we loooove free movies. There’s nothing quite so definitively “summer” as picnicking on park grass or sidling into rows of folding seats to sit back and yell at watch movies on a giant screen under the starry night sky, a warm breeze at your back and fellow Brooklynites (or people you dragged kicking and screaming from Manhattan) by your side.

The countdown to summer starts now, because Brooklyn Bridge Park just released its 2016 schedule for free movies! With live DJs from Brooklyn Radio at 6pm and movies screening at sunset, BBP’s Pier 1 is about to get turnt up for a glorious two months of cinematic summer haze. Here’s the movie schedule, curated by a committee of volunteers. 

July 7: Singing in the Rain 

July 14: Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle

July 21: Purple Rain

July 28: It Happened One Night

August 4: American Graffiti

August 11: Selma 

August 18: A League of Their Own

August 25: public vote (TBD)

DJs and shorts are still yet to be announced, so there’s more exciting news to come. Not to mention all the other free outdoor movie schedules at Habana Outpost, McCarren Park, and indoor ones at some of your favorite dives in the borough. In fact you’ll be so spoiled after this summer, you might never want to “Netflix and Chill” again.
