So as I've already mentioned, I've put together a tentative schedule of outdoor movies for this summer, almost all of which are free. I say tentative because of course, it's all "weather permitting" (I've had rainouts before). This year, I've made a particular effort to attend a wide variety of venues, including several new places in Queens and Brooklyn (I've been there before, but never to see movies). If you're planning to see any outdoor movies, be sure to read my do's and don'ts guide to make sure you have the best time you can!
Later this month, I'll conclude my Spoiler Experiment with a post about the observations I've made during the past several months, about the two movies involved in the experiment, Draft Day and Million Dollar Arm, and about how spoilers are talked about and treated in the industry at large.
