July 19, Staff Report (Update)

Three episodes of Seinfeld will be playing at Hunters Point South Park later this month.

The event is being organized by Hulu, which retains the exclusive streaming rights to the show, and the Hunters Point Parks Conservancy.

The episodes will be screened at the park on the evening of July 28, according to Rob Basch, president of HPPC.

The outdoor screening is in part to highlight a new documentary about Seinfeld fans, which is titled “They’re Real & They’re Spectacular: Seinfeld Super Fans and the Summer of George. The documentary will also be played at the park. For more details, click here.

A trailer of the documentary is below.

Episodes will include Season 8’s finale “The Summer of George,” as well as two additional episodes that will be chosen by Hulu Fans on social media.

To further the Seinfeld fan experience, the event will feature Hulu collectable giveaways, “Frolfing,” a Seinfeld cast look-alike-contest complete with an Elaine dance-off, show-themed food options, interactive social activations, photo opportunities and more.   Additionally, the first 200 guests will receive a Seinfeld limited edition art print.

Rob Basch, President of Hunters Point Parks Conservancy, said the event will act as a homecoming for Jerry and George.

“Jerry and George are both from Queens and many of the classic episodes took place in the Costanza household.  We are excited to host a celebration of this classic series in the home borough where two of its main stars grew up.”

This is a free event open to all.  The festivities will start at 6:30 but the screenings will not take place until dark.

Gothamist was first to report on the screening.

The Staff Reporter of this article is no Seinfeld fan, apparently. Seinfeld was misspelled twice in the article.
