SummerScreen is here!

Movies + Music + Food + Beer + Brooklyn = SummerScreen!

With the Northside Festival now safely in our rearview mirror and temperatures rising to near-ludicrous levels, it can mean only one thing: it’s time for SummerScreen! We're kicking off this year's series on Wednesday, July 9, with Back to the Future, because a) it’s a perfect movie and, b) the soundtrack was the first ever album I owned—on cassette, no less.

There will be plenty of delectable local food and beverages available, courtesy of Sixpoint Brewery, Rekorderlig Cider, Handsome Hanks, PizzaMoto, Coolhaus, V Spot, La Crepe C'est Si Bon, Soul Snack, Landhaus, Mighty Meaty, and Between the Buns. So come with an empty stomach and a full heart. You'll find us every Wednesday at McCarren Park at the corner of Bedford and N. 12th St. (right next to the tennis courts). Gates open at 6pm, the music (full lineup below, after the jump) starts at 6:30, and we'll get the movie started by sundown.

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
