We know, it’s like, “Hey man, let us PAY for our entertainment, you’re making it too easy.” Well, bad news for those of you intent on paying: Habana Outpost‘s typically excellent Sunday summer movie schedule just landed on our inbox, and guess what?

An often overrated part about going to the movies that you know what you’re going to see. We don’t mean in the “formulaic Hollywood garbage” sense, we mean that the sign on the movie theater informs you of what you’re watching. The Independent Filmmaker Project, Filmmaker Magazine and reRun agree with that sentiment, which is why they’ve teamed up for the “Secret Film Club,” a new series of independent movie screenings where you don’t know in advance what they are.

Everyone knows that Brooklyn is for summer. Arguably, there’s nothing better than watching a movie outdoors while consuming alcoholic beverages as the cool Williamsburg breeze blows through your hair. There are a million and one places to do this in Brooklyn, but do you ever feel like it could be…gayer? Well, that’s because it can. And to remedy this, La Gringa Taqueria (800 Grand Street, Williamsburg) will be launching an LGBT-focused Thursday night film series starting on May 2nd. (more…)
Sure, you’ve still got your space heater plugged in and haven’t retired that ratty winter coat yet, but really, summer is coming, we swear! (Maybe. Hopefully. PLEASE GOD PLEASE). And even if the weather’s being coy, Brooklyn Bridge Park’s getting ready for outdoor movie season: they’ve released the schedule for Syfy’s free Movies With a View series, and it looks awesome. Like, Ferris Bueller-awesome. Because one of the films is Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. Seriously, if you’re not psyched, you’re not human. (more…)
The Simpsons and beer go together like, well, Duffman and “Oh yeah!” But aside from Simpsons Trivia at Berry Park, your only option for enjoying the two together was hanging out on your couch. But now Nitehawk has come to the rescue of stir crazy Simpsons fans by starting their Monday night Simpsons Club, featuring episodes playing in the cafe. And it’s all for FREE. (more…)
It’s an inescapable fact that free things to do are just a little harder to find in the colder than the warmer months. We inevitably end up having to plump for more paid events, relying hopefully on the prospect of impending gainful employment and the spoils of nuisance lawsuits because heaven forbid we can be at peace with staying in.
One of the most enjoyable ways to entertain yourself with minimal cash is to catch a great movie with your friends but at a time of year when sitting on a blanket will get you nothing but a frozen tucchus and prime candidacy for a kidney infection what are the feasible options? Well come in from the cold, dear compatriots, pull up a stool while cradling a drink and something tasty and feast your eyes on the following options: (more…)
Just because summer’s almost over doesn’t mean the free movies have to end too. This Saturday, The Well brings back the bike-in movie concept for an outdoor viewing of Shut Up and Play the Hits: The Very Loud Ending of LCD Soundsystem. For those arriving on two wheels, the evening will start with a bicycle valet; there will also be a bbq (with vegetarian options) to enhance your viewing pleasure, in addition to The Well’s supply of more than 300 beers, a “wall of liquor,” and even 20 kinds of champagne, if you’re feeling fancy after having your bike valeted. The evening promises a fun time for both fans of LCD Soundsystem, and those who just want to check out a new bar with an outdoor space and a bbq. Full details of the night can be found here.
Are you sitting there frothing at the mouth yet in anticipation of full-on summer, straining against your cubicle walls with the thoughts of skipping work early on Fridays to hit the beach, itching to rip off your boring khakis and wear nothing but jorts jorts jorts for the next three months? Let us throw some more ants into your pants: the Red Hook Flicks free summer movie series released its schedule last night, which starts July 10 on the Valentino Pier. Not only is the series a great reason to check out the oft-overlooked nabe, the theme is “Scary Monsters and Super Freaks,” which includes movies ranging from Alien (way better than Prometheus, fyi) to Young Frankenstein (widely known as one of the best movies ever made). The full list below: (more…)
Normally we wouldn’t just post about a free movie screening, but this one is a free movie screening by one of the guys involved with Flight of the Concords AND it’s followed by a Michael Jackson dance party. Tomorrow at Knitting Factory in Williamsburg, BrooklynVegan is presenting a free screening of BOY, a coming of age comedy set in New Zealand centered around Michael Jackson and the release of Thriller. It’s written, directed and starring Taika Waititi, who directed Eagle Vs. Shark and a few episodes of Flight of the Concords. BOY was nominated for a Grand Jury Prize at Sundance in 2010. Movie starts at 8pm, dance party at 10. [Insert "boy" and "Michael Jackson" joke here]. Shamone!
When I was just a wee brokester, the only free Christmas week entertainment available involved taking another tour through the Babbage’s at Ye Olde Ocean County Mall, test driving the new Super Nintendo game you didn’t get for Christmas. You kids in Brooklyn have it a lot better: next Thursday, BAM is treating you to free movies for the holidays. You can chose from two movies, complete with free popcorn and soda: Spike Lee’s Crooklyn or Gina Prince-Blythwood’s Love and Basketball. Both beat being forced to see New Year’s Eve with your parents. Teens can pick up tickets starting at 10am Dec. 29.
