Video Blog: The Little Mermaid Sing-Along In Brooklyn
To continue what seems to be a weeklong trend of lots and lots of video content, here's a video blog I recorded with Erin McCarthy and Angie Han after we caught a sing-along screening of The Little Mermaid at The Bell House in Gowanus, Brooklyn. It was a crowd made up almost entirely of twentysomethings, probably a third of whom cheered when the hosts asked if it was the first movie we had ever seen in Brooklyn. And yes, the crowd was made up almost entirely of women and gay men, but who better to laugh inappropriately every time Prince Eric plays his dumb flute?
New York City is filled with many great theaters that play old, excellent movies, but I'm not sure any of them are as much fun as screaming "Kiss The Girl" in a crowd of hundreds in the bar of a bar... on St. Patrick's Day, no less.
