Culture on the Cheap
Movies At McCarren Park!
Town Square is hosting a series of movies this summer at McCarren Park. I cannot say I am too pleased by the sponsors, among whom are Forest City Ratner and Greenpoint Landing “A Park Tower Development” (which sounds ominous. Whatever it is, I am certain we’ll have the pleasure of finding out soon enough.*), but the line-up looks decent.** Of particular interest to yours truly is July 30th: “Country Night” whose cinematic feature will be Blazing Saddles, arguably the best Mel Brooks film ever made.
As Town Square’s poster indicates, the festivities begin at 6:00 p.m. with “Children’s Hour”. This is followed by live music at 7:30 p.m. and movies at sunset— so whip out your lawn chairs!
*If anyone knows what this is, please enlighten me.
**”Girlz Night” features a Tomb Raider sequel because, you know, us “girls” are into that sort of thing.
