Presenting The McCarren Park “SummerScreen” 2017 Film Festival Lineup

So let’s catch up before getting into this new one. It was not too long ago that I posted about a host of free concerts for the early riser that would be happening over at the Central Park Summerstage as a part of the Good Morning America broadcast and I followed that with the also free movie screenings that will take place during a normal hour over at the beautiful Bryant Park just off of Times Square. Those posts are easily found on the website if you missed them so please give a look see because like I said “FREE”. Now it’s time to shift the focus over to my beloved Brooklyn for the film series that is happening over at McCarren Park which is in Williamsburg. I know the park well as I grew up in the region about a thousand years ago. They call their film series the “SummerScreen” and it features live music, deejays and food and drink vendors along with the free film. At the time of this narrative I have no idea about the performers or vendors and can only share the films and their dates of screening. Check out the films below and know that these events begin the run on July 5th until August 9th. You should check the times and restrictions via the individual entries that I will have on the calendar.

Dates & Featured Films:
July 5 – Mean Girls
July 12 – Office Space
July 19 – Donnie Darko
July 26 – Selena,
August 2 – I Know What You Did Last Summer
August 9 – Audience Choice (fans can vote for one of these films: Now and Then, Twister, She’s All That, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, Beetlejuice and Romy and Michelle’s High School Reunion)

Now its onto another special offering that our fair Big Apple will be doling out care of the fine folks at HBO. Situated in the smaller but beautiful Bryant Park, interested fans will have the chance to enjoy a free screening of some truly awesome movies right under the stars and skyscrapers of Manhattan. Though the summers in NYC are often quite the sweltering experience, I have to think that a nice cool breeze will be present along with plenty of good company. Check out the films below. The events begin the run on June 19th until August 21st and the lawn portion opens up at 5pm.

The Chronicles Of PiercingKen Hits 7th Anniversary

Good afternoon readers, I just wanted to take a moment out of this rainy Monday to share the news about today being the seventh anniversary of my Lifestyle Blog “The Chronicles Of PiercingKen”. As longer tenured visitors already know, this website was launched as a space for me to share all the different stuff that didn’t fall in lines with my Music and Pop Culture themed PIERCINGMETAL.com website. During the course of the last year, I’ve made sure to keep the content flowing and while its not as often as it might be with PM.com, there are a considerable amount of narratives becoming a part of this presentation based on conventions and other events that fit best right here. Now its time to talk about the stuff that’s been changed a little bit and to showcase some fun photos that helped me celebrate The Chronicles “Lucky 7th” Anniversary and since we are discussing “luck” what is better than this visual of a slot machine from Atlantic City.
