Get your summer fridge humping in, thanks to Canal Bar

If you’ve seen the many lists of outdoor summer movies we’ve been sharing in the past few weeks, you’d have noticed something: a dangerous lack of Wet Hot American Summer. Fortunately, with the list they’ve just released for their own backyard movie series, Gowanus’ own Canal Bar (270 3rd Avenue) has remedied that situation, and plans to show many, many more movies.

The series kicks off this Sunday at 8pm and will run every consecutive Sunday through September. Between the movies shown here and the ones at Lavender Lake, you’d be a fool to pay for any cinema from now until October. The full schedule, which was announced on their Facebook page, is as follows:

June 23: The Goonies
June 30: Pulp Fiction
July 7: Dazed and Confused
July 14: Mean Girls
July 21: Wet Hot American Summer
July 28: American Pie
August 4: The Warriors
August 11: The Big Lebowski
August 18: Clueless
August 25: Zombieland
September 1: Animal House
September 8: Caddyshack
September 15: Hot Rod
September 22: The Breakfast Club
September 29: Jurassic Park
October 6: Rocky Horror Picture Show
