If 2008’s Iron Man rocked your socks off, get ready – because the sequel just might melt your fillings. Robert Downey Jr. returns as Tony Stark, a billionaire weapons mogul now committed to maintaining world peace as his own mechanically enhanced alter ego. But our hero is definitely up against it this time around: not only does the U.S. government want control of his super suit, but he’ll also go toe to toe with Scarlett Johansson and (gulp) Mickey Rourke. This is rock’em sock’em popcorn fare at its finest.
Starting at 7pm there will be live music courtesy of a DJ, with the screening of a short film following. This week Rooftop will present Mary Robertson’s short film, Missed Connections; a film about those moments that have the potential to change a life’s course—that look on the subway, that flicker of attraction at the café, the one that got away. It’s a charming documentary which peers inside the online messages-in-a-bottle and asks whether love lost can be found again.
Coney Island screenings will continue every Monday night through the end of August, with screenings of New York classics like Annie Hall and Moonstruck and newer releases like Never Say Never, with Rooftop shorts before all of them.
Venue: On the Beach at Coney Island. W 12th and the beach, right near Luna Park.
Train: Take the F train to Coney Island, walk to the beach and make a left.
