We are setting up our  movie selections and play dates for summer outdoor screenings at community gardens in Brooklyn.  Shows will be scheduled  in Park Slope, Ft. Greene, and Carroll Gardens.

So far, we have two outdoor  shows lined up.  On Sat  July 16 at 8:30 we’ll see Vincent Price  in MASTER OF THE WORLD (1961) . In Park Slope Brooklyn  at The President St.  Garden , corner of President St and 5th Ave.

Price gives a credible and restrained performance  as Robur, the pacifist madman who seeks to end all war by threatening aerial bombardment in the 1840s.  Charles Bronson, so young he’s almost cute, is the US agent onboard the amazing airship Albatross.

MASTER OF THE WORLD 4_2The model, designed by Jim Danforth , is a lovely confection.   Its interior design is Victorian eye candy and the crew are togged out in jolly striped uniforms. With Henry Hull, Mary Webster, Philip Evans.


On Sat July 23rd at 8:30 we’ll see that immortal classic of stop-motion animation, KING KONG (1931).  In Carroll Gardens Brooklyn bordering  Red Hook at the end of  Hamilton Ave where it butts out into Van Brunt: The Backyard Garden.

You think you know this movie because you’ve seen it on TV, but real film on  the big screen brings out all the detail.  The first reel is often cut short for TV but it contains the set-up of character and motivation needed for depth as the story slowly unfolds. The second reel has all that wonderful dinosaur action on Skull Island.  Reel three takes us to New York to  go ape.

KING KONGProducer Merrian Cooper, director, Ernest  Schoedsack and animator Willis O’Brien team up to give us the greatest adventure story ever told!  With Fay Wray, Robert Armstrong and Bruce Cabot.


We will also be presenting  feature films at the  Morbid Anatomy Museum in Gowanus, including  The Phantom Creeps with Bela Lugosi as a mad scientist and the silent Golem with  live music. Dates to be announced!

Watch This Space For Details!
