With Film Forum and Rooftop films co-steering this summer's lineup, Outdoor Cinema has a terrific eight-week program of art-house and foreign cinema in store. The festivities kick off tonight with a sneak preview of Penny Lane’s Our Nixon, an entertaining and evocative documentary about our 37th President that blends Super-8 film shot by the President’s closest aides with period news footage, excerpts from the Nixon tapes, and contemporary interviews. To accompany this Independence Day eve screening, the Strand Smokehouse is cooking BBQ all night long.
