Paramount+ and Brooklyn Magazine, in partnership with Brooklyn Borough President Antonio Reynoso, Prospect Park Alliance and Fort Greene Park Conservancy, are excited to present “Paramount+ Movie Nights in Brooklyn,” a summer series of free films in Fort Greene Park, Prospect Park and McCarren Park.

The fun kicks off with four consecutive Thursday evenings beginning Thursday, June 29, in Fort Greene Park, continues with four consecutive Wednesday evenings starting July 26 in Prospect Park’s Long Meadow, and ends with four final evenings starting Sunday, August 20, in McCarren Park. The series builds off of the longstanding “Summer Movies Under the Stars” series offered in Prospect Park for many years through the support of the Borough President.

“Paramount+ Movie Nights in Brooklyn” will offer nostalgic classics and feel-good fan favorites for all ages. The two-month series lineup will include “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” recent hits “Marcel the Shell with Shoes On,” “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” “Everything Everywhere All at Once,” “Top Gun: Maverick,” and more. See below for the full lineup.

The themes throughout are connectivity, perseverance, friendship, family, self-empowerment, creativity, fantasy, and fun — just what we could all use this summer.

“There’s nothing better than Brooklyn in the summertime, especially the memories of summer as a kid. We’re in luck that nostalgia is the theme of our “Paramount+ Movie Nights in Brooklyn” series this summer,” said Brooklyn Borough President Antonio Reynoso. “I’m thrilled to bring a selection of classic movies, and films we know will become classics, to Fort Greene Park, Prospect Park, and McCarren Park throughout the summer. I look forward to getting this program started and want to extend my deep thanks to the Prospect Park Alliance and the Fort Greene Park Conservancy for their partnership.”

“We are thankful to Borough President Reynoso for continuing this long-cherished tradition of bringing our community together for free movie nights under the stars in Brooklyn’s Backyard, and to Paramount+ and Brooklyn Magazine for their support of this series,” adds Morgan Monaco, President, Prospect Park Alliance, the non-profit organization that sustains, restores and advances Prospect Park. “We also are delighted to partner with the Fort Greene Park Conservancy to expand the series to our sister park for an even better season of outdoor fun.”
