Bigger Screen coming to Pier A

The free “Movies Under the Stars” outdoor movies series on Pier A Park in Hoboken will get a boost in its projection surface to two-stories high, this year, with the participation of Fresh Air Flicks, a Brooklyn-based company lending its outdoor high-definition projector, bigger screen and enhanced sound equipment and services. Scheduled to begin Wednesday, June 11th at dusk, this year’s series will open with Charlie Wilson’s War, Tom Hanks’ 2007 portrayal of a womanizing United States Congressman who uses his power to help Afghan rebels defeat Soviet soldiers who invaded their country. The series ends August 27th with an animated story about a champion surfer who happens to be a penguin.

Thank you Hoboken for being such a wonderful audience at “The Movies Under the Stars, 2008.” This was our first year working with The City of Hoboken Cultural Affairs Department to provide the technical services for the outdoor movie series. We hope you enjoyed the new screen, projection and sound. Many of you approached us with compliments and advice on how to improve the show and the concessions.

We projected over 200 outdoor movies this year in and around NYC, and Hoboken is definitely one of the best outdoor movie watching experience in the area. We hope to return again next year.

But the wall would need to be re-painted and as Easy-E pointed out, the projector requred to shoot a large image across that distance would be very, very expensive. But we’ll keep working on it. Thanks again everyone. Hope… Read more »

[quote comment=”94698″]Many Dogs were on the grass during the movie Atonement.Why do owners think the rules do not apply to them. Not everyopne likes dogs and some are afraid of them. They smell, bark and try to get into your food. We do not want to smell urine or feces while we are trying to enjoy the movie. Try to consider others, take a hint and follow the rules.[/quote]

i don’t know about the rules. if they aren’t allowed they aren’t allowed, but if they are, then no one cares if you think they smell. :mrgreen:

i don’t like to smell a lot of other humans, but i do.

If I go again, I’m bringing a thermos of margarita & ice. As for the question of mosquitoes, I’ve never been bit. And mosquitoes LOVE me.[/quote]

Yeh, who does that?! Nonstop barking the entire movie.
