Our Wicked Lady, the East Williamsburg bar/venue that described itself as a “playground for musicians” when it opened in 2015, is becoming even more of a playground this summer, with a rooftop movie series. It joins SummerScreen, Rooftop Cinema Club, and the Rooftop Films Summer Series in announcing its summer slate.
As you can see from the poster, the films include some musical masterpieces (Velvet Goldmine, Sid & Nancy, Moonwalker, Rock & Roll High School, Dirty Dancing), some childhood throwback fare (The Goonies, The Princess Bride, Labyrinth and classic Transformers), some more recent favorites (Donnie Darko, Fight Club, The 5th Element, The Fantastic Mr. Fox, True Romance, and Repo Man), and an obvious jab at Trump: Funny or Die’s spoof of The Art of the Deal, paired with Team America.
The movies, which are free, start at sunset every Monday, and Bushwick artist collective The SkyFortress will be operating a donations-based “cantina.” For tonight’s screening of The Goonies: Carne asada and sweet potato and kale. Make like Corey Feldman and go 4 it!
Free Rooftop Movie Mondays, every Monday except June 12, through Sept. 25, at Our Wicked Lady, 153 Morgan Ave, East Williamsburg.
