This Thursday Movies with a View returns to Brooklyn Bridge Park’s Pier 1 with one of the greatest movies of all time The Big Lebowski. Last week, noise complaints prompted the Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy and Brooklyn Bridge Park Development Corporation to send a letter to residents asking for their “patience” while kinks are worked out in the sound system for movies and other events.
Tonight stars from the Metropolitan Opera will perform at Pier 1.
The Big Lebowski and opera in the same space, for free, just days apart in our backyard. And what do residents here do? Whine about the noise rather then saunter down to the park and enjoy great entertainment in a truly one-of-a-kind venue.
What would the dude say? Maybe something like: “This is a very complicated case, Homer. You know, a lotta ins, lotta outs, lotta what-have-yous. And, uh, lotta strands to keep in my head, man. Lotta strands in old Duder’s head. Luckily I’m adhering to a pretty strict, uh, drug regiment to keep my mind limber.”
