Rockrose has joined forces with an event organizer and the owners of M. Wells Steakhouse to put together a movie and music series in the Court Square section of Long Island City.
The festival will take place every Thursday and Saturday from August 7 to September 20 at 43-29 Crescent Street, according to the organizers of the series, who spoke at a Community Board 2 meeting Wednesday.
The event series, first reported by the Daily News, will be family friendly and free, according to the organizers.
The films will be shown on Thursday after dark, while the music series will take place on Saturdays starting from 4pm through to 9pm, the organizers said.
M. Well Steakhouse will provide food and beverages and local breweries will be invited too.
The events will take place on the triangular lot next that currently hosts artwork from Socrates Sculpture Park. The lot is small, with a maximum capacity of 190.
The music will feature indie-rock, folk and soul bands.
