SYFY MOVIES WITH A VIEW: SHARKNADO 2
The original Sharknado was pretty great, a bonkers low-budget crappy special effects-fest about a series of tornados that had sharks in them for some reason. The only point against it really was that it wasn’t set in New York, and look at that, Sharknado 2 fixes that issue, so go revel in the glory of its badness while also recognizing stuff on screen.
6pm, Brooklyn Bridge Park, Pier 1, Brooklyn Heights, FREE
