‘Annie Hall’ kicks off Brooklyn Bridge Park movie series

The movies are still great at the DUMBO outdoor series, “Movies with a View” — though the view has changed.

With its location in Brooklyn Bridge park closed for renovations, the decade-old series will be held at the newly opened Pier 1, with the screen found on its southern-most lawn right on the harbor.

The view won’t be as quintessentially Brooklyn, with the expanse of the Brooklyn Bridge behind the screen in previous years, but it still will be pretty sweet.

The series kicks off on July 8 with “Annie Hall,” Woody Allen’s 1977 love story starring the filmmaker as a — what else? — neurotic New Yorker, and Diane Keaton as his lovely non-Jewish muse.

There’s another film every Thursday until the end of August.

With concessions including burritos from Calexico and Blue Marble ice cream, this will definitely blow the typical movie-going experience out of the water.

“Annie Hall” at Pier 1 [Old Fulton Street at Furman Street in DUMBO, (718) 802-0603 or (212) 803-3822], July 8. Films start at sundown. Free. For more info, visit
