BEST IN SHOW

With its Downtown Brooklyn theater set to open later this summer, the Alamo Drafthouse Brooklyn will offer a taste of its movie programming with three free admission outdoor screenings at Fort Greene Park.

Featuring three revered contemporary classics, these outdoor shows are a chance for Alamo to introduce itself and connect with New York’s movie-lovers. Each screening will take place at sundown and will be complimented by themed festivities before the show.

“We’re excited for the opportunity to finally share movies with the community before our venue opens. With the Brooklyn sky as our roof, these Fort Greene Park screenings represent the perfect opportunity to meet our new neighbors and introduce them to Alamo Drafthouse,” says NY Creative Manager/Programmer Cristina Cacioppo.

One-of-a-kind film experiences have long been a hallmark of Alamo Drafthouse’s unique approach to programming: for over fifteen years the company has produced screenings of iconic films in iconic locations across the globe. Such high profile signature events have included Sergio Leone’s FISTFUL OF DOLLARS in Spain, ESCAPE FROM ALCATRAZ on Alcatraz Island, CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND at the foot of Devil’s Tower, and JAWS on the famed sandy beaches of Martha’s Vineyard.

“Alamo Drafthouse primarily operates in a theater environment but we’re not limited to that experience,” says Henri Mazza, VP of Special Events. “We exist to create unique and memorable cinematic experiences for audiences everywhere, whether it’s in a theater, on a lake, or in a beautiful park in the heart of Brooklyn. These screenings are a sample of what’s in store for the coming years.”
