SummerScreen launched in 2006 with a screening of Do The Right Thing at the McCarren Pool.  12 years later, we're still going strong.  Check out all of the films we've screened over the years below, as well as some of of our favorite bands who have performed before the movies.  SummerScreen is a project of Northside Media Inc. (Northside Festival, Taste Talks, Brooklyn Magazine).
