BAND OF BROTHERS
Williamsburg’s Nitehawk Cinema is known for its in-theater luxuries — comfortable seating, efficient food-and-drink service — so it’s a measure of the cinema’s admirable adaptability that, during the summer months, it dedicates several weekends to a premiere outdoor-moviegoing experience. The Nitehawk Outdoors series combines free-entry screenings with food, beverages, and live musical performances. (Though general admission costs nothing, $12 VIP tickets —which include amenities like beer, popcorn, and prime-location folding chairs — are available for purchase). Tonight’s opening-night lineup showcases the Coen brothers’ O Brother, Where Art Thou?, featuring a T-Bone Burnett-produced soundtrack that ought to jibe well with the bluegrass sound of the Birdhive Boys, slated to perform before the screening. At 50 Kent Avenue.
