Movies with a View in Brooklyn Bridge Park

The Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy and Brooklyn Bridge Park have announced their 15th annual movie series, a summertime tradition highlighted this year by the first-ever outdoor screening of pop sensation "Sharknado" on Thursday, July 17, on the Harbor View Lawn at Pier 1 in Brooklyn Bridge Park -- in the runup to Syfy’s premiere of "Sharknado 2" at 9 PM on Wednesday, July 30.

Admission is free, but capacity is limited and lawn seating is first-come, first-served, so get there early.

Music starts at 6:00 PM, with screening at sundown. Park concessionaires Ample Hills Ice Cream, Luke’s Lobster, No. 7 Subs, Lizzmonade Brooklyn and the Brooklyn Bridge Garden Bar will offer food and drink.

DJs from Brooklyn Radio will spin pre-movie music, with short films curated by BAMcinématek shown before the weekly feature.

Back this year is the New York Amateur Astronomer's Association, with telescopes from Syfy, and free bike valet parking from Transportation Alternatives and Spinlister.

Media sponsors Gothamist and Brownstoner will highlight the series.

The Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy’s partnership with presenting sponsor Syfy / "Syfy Movies With A View", now in its 7th year, will offer free outdoor films beginning Thursday, July 10 on the Harborview Lawn at Pier 1.
