It’s 2014, and something has gone terribly wrong. The time machine has been stolen, the continuum is disrupted, and now we need to go back to 1955 and set it right. Yep, we’re going Back to The Enchantment Under the Sea Dance!

Come With Us!

The screening and dance will be hosted at St. Patrick’s Gymnasium in Nolita. Go Back to the Future with BBQ Films in March – #BBQtothefuture!

Griswold Family Christmas

Clark Griswold Lightning

On Dec 7th & 8th…

Well, the Holiday season is around the corner, and we know how to celebrate with everyone’s favorite Christmas movies. We’re screening them in an over the top Griswold Family Party complete with a visit from uncle Eddie and his RV, thousands of Christmas lights, and of course, the big jolly fat man himself. BBQ Films is putting up three irresistible Christmas classics: Elf, National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, and Gremlins. And we’re doing it all in a big sexy movie night party complete with eggnog, carolers, decorations from Film Biz Recycling, excellent Chocolate Stout from Brooklyn Brewery, and tons of early seasonal cheer for you and your friends. Should the mood strike you (and we hope it does), spread the cheer by dressing the part: crack out your worst holiday sweater, sexy elf costume, your Santa beard, your best version of your drunk uncle, or just come as yourself. Papa Clark Griswold will be waiting with open arms. Tickets are now available. More info after the link below and the jump.
