For this year’s screening series, the Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy teamed up with Smorgasburg to provide food and drink vending for guests.
Moviegoers will be able to chow down on cheeseburgers from Burger Supreme, crab cakes from Musser's Famous Crab Cake Sandwiches, Belgian-cut fries from Home Frite, pizza from Wood Fired Edibles, and homemade ice cream from Bona Bona Ice Cream.
“We can’t wait to bring together two Brooklyn institutions on the waterfront for food, film, and fun,” said Smorgasburg co-founder Eric Demby. “It’s gonna be a delicious summer.”
Throughout the series, the food and drink options will rotate with new concessions added every week.
“This partnership will certainly enrich our audience’s moviegoing experience,” said Nancy Webster, executive director of the Conservancy. “A cool breeze from the river, the Manhattan skyline, and food from Smorgasburg — what else could you ask for on a summer night in Brooklyn?”
In addition to food, each night will also include pre-show music sets spun by Brooklyn Radio DJs, and short films curated by Bamcinématek.
The series is just one of over 500 free and low-cost events put on by Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy every year.
Movies With A View kicks off on July 12, and runs weekly on Thursdays through August 30. Pre-show music and food offerings begin each evening at 6 p.m., with the movies screening at sundown.
“Movies With A View is one of the premier summer events at Brooklyn Bridge Park,” said Brooklyn Bridge Park President Eric Landau. “We look forward to welcoming back moviegoers for another season and are thrilled that Smorgasburg will be part of it with a variety of concessions.”
