Celebrate the return of Movies with a View and our 22nd season of Brooklyn’s beloved outdoor film series!
On Thursday, July 28 join Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy for How Stella Got Her Groove Back (1998, rated R, 124 minutes), as part of our 2022 theme “Away We Go”.
Unlucky-in-love stockbroker Stella (Angela Bassett) jets to Jamaica with her gal pal Delilah (Whoopi Goldberg) for some fun in the sun. There, the 40-year-old working woman has an island fling with Winston (Taye Diggs) — a handsome 20-something. When it’s time to return to California, Stella realizes that she’s developed real feelings for her new man. But, with their distance from each other, not to mention their disparity in age, does a real relationship stand a chance?
Lawn doors open at 6pm and the movie begins at sundown (around 8:30pm). Smorgasburg will provide tasty treats and drinks all evening along the Pier 1 promenade, now starting earlier at 5pm, featuring a selection of NYC’s favorite food vendors! Beer and wine concessions will be available for purchase for adults 21 and over.

Free bike valet will be available thanks to Transportation Alternatives.
