FILM There are many free, open-air screenings in the city this summer, and here are a few. The films usually start at sunset (around 8-8:30 pm), but common wisdom is to get there at least 2 hours early, to settle in. Angela’s recommendation: “Bring a blanket to sit on and always check the grass for sprinklers. Little buggers are on a timer!”
July 26: “Who Framed Roger Rabbit?” at Hudson Pier 46 July 29: “A Foreign Affair”, at Bryant Park July 31: “Moonrise Kingdom” at Hudson Pier 63 August 1: "8 Mile” at Brooklyn Bridge Park.
FREE YOGA CLASSES Prospect Park Peristyle, Parkside Ave. and Parade Pl., Brooklyn 1-6:30pm Free, $10 donation appreciated
Teachers trained in different styles will be giving donation-based classes throughout the afternoon, with the scenic Prospect Park lake in the background. The event will be held, rain or shine, in the Peristyle, a gorgeous stone pavilion at the south side of Prospect Park, just off of Parkside Avenue, north of the parade grounds. The Peristyle has a roof, so no worries, you won’t get wet if it rains.
Please bring your own mat, as there will be none provided.
