ON THE WATERFRONT
Sure, we love indulging in ’80s films in the park during summertime, but we don’t mind that alt-movie house Film Forum is giving outdoor screenings a bit of sophistication with six international films playing at Socrates Sculpture Park Outdoor Cinema. A collaboration with Rooftop Films, the festival runs every Wednesday for eight weeks of movies, music, dance, and food, with the Long Island City waterfront as a backdrop. It opens tonight with Our Nixon, an all-archival footage documentary of Richard Nixon’s presidency shot with a Super 8 camera by three of his young, ambitious White House aides (who would all later go to prison).
