Movies With A View returns for 18th Season

Now in its 18th year, Movies With A View attracts thousands of people each summer to Brooklyn Bridge Park and this year's series begins July 6, and runs weekly on Thursdays through August 24.

The Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy’s partnership with DeKalb Market Hall – the newly opened, 60,000-square-foot food hall in Downtown Brooklyn - will greatly enhance moviegoers’ experiences this year: while taking in spectacular views, and enjoying a film, attendees can snack on all kinds of food from the Hall’s diverse food vendors. Some highlights include Kotti Berliner Döner Kebab, Foragers Rotisserie, The Pop Cake Shop, and Cuzin’s Duzin. Furthermore, for the first time in the series’ history, the audience will be able to enjoy cool beers and tasty wines from Warsteiner and Oak Beverages – all from the comfort of their picnic blankets.

“What could be more Brooklyn than Movies With A View? It’s a summer ritual and DeKalb Market Hall is thrilled to be there to make it even better,” said Anna Castellani, Managing Partner of DeKalb Market Hall.

“This was a natural partnership,” said Nancy Webster, Executive Director of the Conservancy. “Like DeKalb Market Hall, the Conservancy’s programs and movie series always aim to celebrate the richness and diversity of our community.”

“Movies With A View is a signature event for the Park. And this summer, visitors will get to enjoy the addition of DeKalb Market Hall to the Thursday night lineup,” said Eric Landau, Brooklyn Bridge Park President. “We look forward to kicking off the series next week!”

The Conservancy is happy to welcome back DJs from Brooklyn Radio, who will spin pre-movie music, and BAMcinématek, who will curate short films to be shown before the feature each week. Also returning are the New York Amateur Astronomer’s Association to help stargazers scan the skies, and Transportation Alternatives with their free bike valet parking.

“We are excited for another summer filled with captivating films, and are grateful to our community partners, Brooklyn Bridge Park, and all who come and enjoy the series,” said Devin Mathis, the Conservancy’s Director of Programs.

Pre-show music and food offerings begin each evening at 6:00 pm, with the movies screening at sundown.

The theme for this year’s 8-week-long film series is “Resistance,” and it will highlight issues of race, gender, protest, and triumph.
