FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(BROOKLYN) – To mark the launch of summer and outdoor movie season, Downtown Brooklyn Partnership and Alamo Drafthouse are excited to announce the “Outer Space Outdoors” movie series at Albee Square, every Thursday in June.
It’s the first time that Alamo Drafthouse has brought its programming to the great outdoors of Downtown Brooklyn. Since its 2016 opening at City Point, the seven-screen, 800-seat dine-in theater and House of Wax bar has become a local favorite and the perfect accompaniment to a shopping trip to the Fulton Mall.
Families will enjoy out of this world evenings that kick off at 7pm with a pre-show DJ set. Viewers can bring a blanket and settle in in time for the 8pm movie start.
Downtown Brooklyn Partnership President Regina Myer said, “Outdoor movies have become a summer staple and this year we’re excited to announce Outer Space Outdoors with Downtown Brooklyn institution, Alamo Drafthouse. What better place to enjoy Outer Space movies than under the stars? Albee Square is a great neighborhood spot and we look forward to welcoming Brooklynites and visitors from across the five boroughs to join us for fun flicks throughout June.”
Alamo Drafthouse Program Manager Cristina Cacioppo said, “Outdoor movies are a New York tradition and the Outer Space Outdoors series offers us the opportunity to bring some of our favorite films to this classic Brooklyn venue. We hope our regular audience of moviegoers will join neighbors and visitors alike in watching fan favorites, cult classics and blockbusters outside this summer.”
