Who doesn’t love the way NYC turns into one giant free outdoor movie theater in the summer? You’d probably love it more if you could get seats. Luckily, Waterside has you covered in August with a stellar line-up starting this Monday, August 3–minus the unbearable crowds.

We’re showing How to Train Your Dragon (Aug 3), Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (Aug 10), Finding Nemo (Aug 17), The Dark Knight (Aug 24). We’ve got popcorn, seating, and a river breeze. Bring yourselves and your friends. Lawn chairs and blankets are welcome, and the public is more than welcome. Films start at dusk (around 8PM).
