Not only has Greta Gerwig unleashed a new clip from her forthcoming movie with Noah Baumbach, Mistress America (out Aug. 14), but she just unveiled the lineup of the outdoor film series she curated for The Palms in Rockaway. Among the flicks that will be screened inside of the new palm-tree oasis at Beach 96th and Rockaway Beach Boulevard are Last Days of Disco (starring kindred “it” girl Chloe Sevigny, Aug. 9), Woody Allen’s Broadway Danny Rose (Aug. 16), Spike Lee’s Do the Right Thing (Aug. 30), and The Landlord (Aug. 23).
If you’d rather not shell out $10 (tickets available via the links), don’t worry: the Rockaway Civic Association has unleashed this summer’s lineup for its free series, Beach Flix. It includes perennial family favorites like Jaws (in case you missed it on Randall’s Island) and Jurassic Park (in case you missed it on Pier I), but there’s also some hipster bait like Fantastic Mr. Fox, on the sand at Beach 106th Street this Thursday, and another Wes Anderson flick, Grand Budapest Hotel, on the beach at 121st Street on Sept. 4. Films begin after sundown, and it’s BYOB (Bring Your Own, ahem, Blankets). Peep the full schedule here.
