Description

Brooklyn Borough President Eric L. Adams and Prospect Park Alliance present A Summer Movie Under the Stars in partnership with Brooklyn’s Nitehawk Cinema. Join us for 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.

**Please note: the Wednesday, July 17 screening of Brave has been rescheduled to take place on Thursday, August 1 due to expected rain**

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.

Event Timeline:
6 pm: Pre-Movie Fun courtesy of our community partners
7 pm: Live Musical Entertainment
8:20 pm: Movie Begins

The full line-up and pre-film musical acts are as follows:

Love and Basketball (2000)
Wednesday, July 24

Two next-door neighbors in Los Angeles, California who are pursuing their basketball careers end up falling for each other. A DJ set by Dr. Israel before the film showcases the film's love of R&B & hip hop from the 80's, 90's, and early aughts.

Babe: Pig in the City (1998)
Wednesday, July 31

Babe, fresh from his victory in the sheepherding contest, returns to Farmer Hoggett's farm, but after Farmer Hoggett is injured and unable to work, Babe must go to the big city in to save the farm. The pre-movie entertainment is a tribute set dedicated to director George Miller by Morricone Youth, a NYC band dedicated to writing, performing and recording music written for the moving image.

Brave (2012)
Thursday, August 1, Please note: This is a rain date screening.
A Scottish girl determined to make her own path in life, Princess Merida defies a custom that brings chaos to her kingdom. Granted one wish, Merida must rely on bravery and her archery skills to undo a beastly curse. Paying homage to Brave's Scottish roots there will be a live performance by Kings County Pipe Band, founded in 2010 in Park Slope, Brooklyn.
