Check Out the 2019 Summer Movie Lineup
June 17, 2019
Brooklyn Borough President Eric L. Adams and Prospect Park Alliance, in partnership with Nitehawk Cinema, present Summer Movies Under the Stars. Back for a third year, the Prospect Park community is invited to enjoy this popular summer series of free movies on Prospect Park's scenic Long Meadow, preceded by live entertainment, three consecutive Wednesday evenings starting July 17, with a rain date of August 1. Entertainment begins at 7 pm, followed by the movie screening at dusk.
This year's series celebrates women's voices in cinema by highlighting three fan-favorite films: Brave (co-written and co-directed by Brenda Chapman), Love and Basketball (written and directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood), and Babe: Pig in the City (co-written by Judy Morris). Each film is unique in its storytelling about bravery, love and expanding horizons, and what better way to celebrate these themes than with our friends, families and community.
“I am proud to be joining Prospect Park Alliance and Nitehawk Cinema to announce our annual Summer Movies Under the Stars. This series is a great opportunity to bring Brooklynites together to enjoy some free entertainment while taking in the natural wonders of Prospect Park. The movies being shown this year were all written and/or directed by women, and feature strong female characters who overcome trying circumstances and teach valuable lessons about courage, selflessness, and perseverance. We hope these films inspire young women throughout the borough and beyond to pursue their dreams and embrace challenges. We look forward to seeing everyone there,” said Brooklyn Borough President Eric L. Adams.
"Prospect Park is Brooklyn’s Backyard, and what better way to gather with friends and neighbors than a free summer movie under the stars," said Sue Donoghue, president of Prospect Park Alliance. "A big thanks to the Borough President, who has been a steadfast supporter of the Park, and also to Nitehawk Cinema for creating such a wonderful line up of movies."
