New York’s premier outdoor venue, The Brooklyn Mirage, located in the industrial enclave of East Williamsburg, is pleased to announce the launch of the Mirage Cinema series on Thursday, July 19 from 6pm-1am with the cult classic “Dazed and Confused.” Transforming the sprawling multi-level oasis into a state-of-the-art outdoor cinema complete with stunning visuals, impeccable sound, and one of the largest film screens to ever hit Brooklyn, the evening promises to be a great way to unwind after work with friends and family over a variety of fun-filled activities complimented by delicious food and wine.
Kicking off with the coming-of-age cult classic “Dazed and Confused,” the 1993 hit is a nostalgia-drenched ode to summer vacation and high school memories starring a young Matthew McConaughey and Ben Affleck. As doors open at 6pm, a pre-film cocktail hour will be soundtracked by some of New York’s finest DJs presenting music inspired by the film before it starts at 8:30pm, followed by an ice cream social after party hosted by Brooklyn favorites Van Leeuwen.
With a plethora of food and beverage choices, Mirage Cinema will satisfy all palates. From cheese and charcuterie, hot dogs, burgers, Neapolitan pizza, nachos, tacos, popcorn, and candy alongside a full cocktail menu, carafes of wine and specialty frozen drinks, moviegoers will be impressed by the vast array of options available. Rounding out the evening’s entertainment will be a “Dazed and Confused” themed interactive photo booth from Nicky Digital as well as trivia to test ticketholders’ film knowledge projected before the film on the big screen. Also offering a variety of ticketing options from general admission through to VIP packages that include premium viewing from one of the venue’s priority vantage points, luxe seating, wine and charcuterie, the Mirage Cinema caters to every budget and taste.
Converting the impressive 18,000 square foot tropical courtyard into a truly unique outdoor viewing experience, the launch marks the first in the Mirage Cinema series, with the remaining films set to screen every second Thursday over the summer. Providing padded folded chairs in the front and picnic tables in the back, alongside intimate premium viewing areas for couples or larger groups, guests will be able to lounge underneath the palm trees and marvel at the 360-degree video mapping. Projecting classics and blockbusters alike onto a gigantic 18’ x 32’ screen alongside a crisp VHD5.0 festival-level sound system, this is the unrivaled movie experience NYC film buffs have been waiting for.
