FILM | "Be Kind Rewind"


Held in Martin Luther King Jr. Park and set against the background of the city, Movies with a Downtown View ends its second summer with "Be Kind Rewind." The event will be supplied by food trucks and a beer station, but patrons are also allowed to bring a picnic of their own otherwise. The Michel Gondry-directed 2008 film "Be Kind Rewind" stars Jack Black and Mos Def as two VHS store clerks who, having accidentally erased the film on all of their store's tapes, set out to recreate numerous classic and iconic films.

Movies with a Downtown View takes place Friday, August 14, from 6 p.m. until 10 p.m. The movies are held at Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Park, 353 Court Street. The screening is free. For more information visit
