As if those Rockaway film fests weren’t exciting enough, the good news for al-fresco cinephiles keeps coming. Films in Tompkins sends word that it’s hosting its first ever “food fair” at Thursday’s screening of Chinatown.
While we’ve been packing our picnic baskets for SummerScreen, Rooftop Films, Nitehawk’s Summer Series, Films on the Green, and the films at Socrates Sculpture Park, one of our favorite outdoor movie series has remained relatively mum about its plans. But the folks behind Films in Tompkins recently wrote in to tell us that, yes, they’re once again bringing a big screen to Tompkins Square Park this year. Not only that, but in the spirt of Greta Gerwig’s forthcoming film fest in Rockaway, series founder Darin Rubell (owner of Forrest Point and Boulton & Watt) has tapped some celebs to pick the flicks.
