As if a movie on the big screen, outdoors on a warm summer night isn’t magical enough, once a week in Dumbo you can watch one the under the lights of the Brooklyn Bridge and those of the Manhattan skyline twinkling in the distance. Now in its tenth year, Syfy’s Movies With A View makes a spot on the grass in Brooklyn Bridge Park the most coveted piece of land on Thursday nights. Crowds gather early spreading blankets and sprawling out, to catch up with friends, share a picnic or do nothing but relax to the sounds of Brooklyn Radio while waiting for the sun to set. (Movies start at sundown). Aside from the free entertainment aspect of it, the event is one of summer’s best activities simply because of the setting. You very well may find yourself swept away more by the view than the movie itself!

 Through August 27
