FREE Starship Troopers Screening at SummerScreen

Sign Up for the Dopest Events Newsletter in the Bay Area

McCarren Park is the best spot in New York to see spandex-clad hipsters sunning out their hangovers, guys selling empanadas out of Igloos, children riding scooters, fluffy dogs that fit into purses and adults playing elementary school sports. But on most days, there is an extreme lack of giant space bugs, pre-Charlie-Sheen-spawn-producing Denise Richards and giant asteroids hitting Earth. This will change tomorrow night with SummerScreen’s FREE showing of Starship Troopers.

Best Newsletter Ever!

Join our weekly newsletter so we can send you awesome freebies, weird events, incredible articles, and gold doubloons (note: one of these is not true).

I won’t say that Starship Troopers is the greatest movie ever, but I will say that it’s the greatest movie set in a futuristic, military society about teenagers joining the military to defeat the giant bugs who destroyed Buenos Aires with an asteroid ever. And the space bugs will look so cool on a big ass screen, as will Neil Patrick Harris telling you how to kill them. Get there early to stake out a good spot the brownish-green grass!

Kiley E - Ragamuffin Researcher

After years of denial, Kiley has finally admitted to baring a striking resemblance to Velma from Scooby Doo. Instead of traveling in a van hunting ghosts, she prefers wandering on foot in search of tacos, cheap beer, and fake birds. Growing up in Portland, Kiley enjoyed the balance of urban and green spaces. Then she spent her four years at Ithaca College, and found herself craving more sprawling asphalt in her life. So she moved to Williamsburg, Brooklyn, where most of the buildings look like they're about to collapse. Kiley's favorite activities include: getting lost, crafting, sewing, biking, and geeking out at museums. Her love of taxidermy probably makes her a terrible vegetarian, but she doesn't care.
