Bitchcakes totally beat me to the scoop on this one and I congratulate her. If I have to be out-dished by someone, I am delighted it be by someone as beautiful, witty and charming as she is. I have met Miss Cakes (she’s even more fabulous in person) and am proud to have her as a neighbor.

That said, as are most seemingly good things in this neighborhood, this entertainment has an interesting benefactor. Watch the film I shot of this evening’s festivities and you’ll get the idea.

Thanks in part to you, Mr. Guttman, Greenpoint is smokin’ with excitement!

P.S.: Sincere props go out to Photoplay, the Parks Department and all the other peeps behind these movie nights. Seriously. It is a GREAT idea: not only is it a free evening’s entertainment, but it gives us Greenpointers an opportunity to hang out, have fun and get to know each other.

  2. Wow, wish I had known about this series earlier! A tribute to Hazel Court, one of innumerable starlets to be dubbed “The Queen of Screams” for her, uh, lungs getting a full workout in Grade Z Hollyweird schlockola. And “The Raven,” too–AIP crap of the highest caliber from the fastest great director ever, Roger Corman, who left a film shoot with novice Francis Ford Coppola in Europe to helm the flick.

    The weather tonight had to be a little different than when the old man took my brother and me to see it at the old Union, NJ, drive-in. Dead of winter, and along with the speaker you took from the pole you parked next to, hooking it to the window, they gave you some kind of heater that actually did the trick. (The drive-in is now-what else?–condos, but lives on in memory, and not just mine: Philip Roth name-checked it in his recent “The Plot Against America.”)

    Oh, well, next week: Ray Harryhausen’s masterpiece, “Jason and the Argonauts.” Those sword-wielding skeletons can mess with a kid’s mind…
