With the Northside Festival now safely in our rearview mirror and temperatures rising to near-ludicrous levels, it can mean only one thing: it’s time for SummerScreen! We’re kicking off this year’s series on Wednesday, July 9, with Back to the Future, because a) it’s a perfect movie and, b) the soundtrack was the first ever album I owned—on cassette, no less.
There will be plenty of delectable local food and beverages available, courtesy of Sixpoint Brewery, Rekorderlig Cider, Handsome Hanks, PizzaMoto, Coolhaus, V Spot, La Crepe C’est Si Bon, Soul Snack, Landhaus, Mighty Meaty, and Between the Buns. So come with an empty stomach and a full heart. You’ll find us every Wednesday at McCarren Park at the corner of Bedford and N. 12th St. (right next to the tennis courts). Gates open at 6pm, the music (full lineup below) starts at 6:30, and we’ll get the movie started by sundown.
Thank you to our sponsors for keeping SummerScreen free: The Lincoln Motor Company, Topman, Rekorderlig Cider, Jameson, Sixpoint Brewery, Zico, American Museum of Natural History, MoMA, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,Boyhood and HB Studio.
