<![CDATA[Celebrate Brooklyn!: The Waterboys / Alasdair Roberts]]> http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2013/07/19/the-waterboys-alasdair-roberts http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2013/07/19/the-waterboys-alasdair-roberts Date: July 19, 2013

The enigmatic songwriter Mike Scott, “madman or genius, depending on your point of view,” (Record Collector Magazine) has explored many sounds and styles through THE WATERBOYS, his principle vehicle since 1983, but Celtic folk rock of burning intensity remains at the center. The band’s latest project is An Appointment with Mr. Yeats, music set to the words of Ireland’s greatest lyric poet. Scott’s fellow Scot ALASDAIR ROBERTS, a sometime collaborator with Will Oldham, infuses his songs “with the enduring melodies and lyrical twists of ancient folk music.” (The Guardian UK)

Watch a movie in the great outdoors. Join us for our citywide Summer Movie Series featuring family-friendly films through August. Admission is free. Please feel free to bring your own snacks and comfy chairs or blankets, as a limited number of chairs will be available.

From Walt Disney Animation Studios comes Bolt, the tale of a superstar TV pup (voiced by John Travolta) who gets plopped in the middle of America with seemingly no way back to the glam and glitz of Hollywood. Thanks to his starring role on a hit television show, Bolt the pooch has become a household name. But Bolt has bought into his own heroic image, now believing that he really possesses the super-canine powers of his fictional television series. When he's accidentally shipped from Hollywood to New York City, he must rely on the help from his two newfound friends -- an abandoned house cat named Mittens (voiced by Susie Essman) and a television-addicted hamster named Rhino (voice of Mark Walton) -- as he embarks on a cross-country quest to get back to his owner (and co-star), Penny (voice of Miley Cyrus).

Maurice Pialat's1972 drama, "We Won’t Grow Old Together (Nous Ne Vieillirons Pas Ensemble) " tells the story of Jean, an unpleasant, domineering man. Though he still lives with his wife, their marriage has been over for quite some time. All the while, he has been having an affair with the much-younger Catherine. The relationship is moving toward disintegration, and although Catherine resists it, alternating recriminations and reconciliations hasten their inevitable breakup.
