In celebration of Prospect Park’s 150th anniversary, Brooklyn Borough President Eric L. Adams and Prospect Park Alliance present A Summer Movie Under the Stars in partnership with Brooklyn’s Nitehawk Cinema.

These free outdoor film screenings on Prospect Park’s Long Meadow will feature live musical entertainment followed by family-friendly films carefully selected by Nitehawk Cinema to highlight park themes such as the famed Prospect Park Zoo, summer camps, Little League Baseball, and the exquisite flora and fauna.

Live entertainment begins at 7:00 p.m. and films begin shortly after sundown.

About Moonrise Kingdom
Featuring a Wes Anderson-inspired set from Morricone Youth! The year is 1965, and the residents of New Penzance, an island off the coast of New England, inhabit a community that seems untouched by some of the bad things going on in the rest of the world. Twelve-year-olds Sam (Jared Gilman) and Suzy (Kara Hayward) have fallen in love and decide to run away. But a violent storm is approaching the island, forcing a group of quirky adults (Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, Bill Murray) to mobilize a search party and find the youths before calamity strikes.
