A Films in Tompkins shocker: No rain expected tonight; also, Romeo and Juliet

Waaaay back on June 6, "William Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet" was to be the first of the free music-movie nights in Tompkins Square Park. It turned out to be the first of six films that got KO'd by foul weather (or the threat of foul weather).

The Films in Tompkins people rescheduled this one for tonight... and, amazingly enough, the forecast doesn't call for any showers. Or rain.

As for the movie, this is the 1996 version directed by Baz Luhrmann ... with Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes.

Speaking of Leonardo, the trailer for Martin Scorsese's "The Wolf of Wall Street" looks pretty good, don't you think?

As for tonight, there's also free pre-movie music from Sweet Street Symphony.

And upcoming in the Park:

Aug. 22 — O Brother Where Art Thou

Well, considering the film-maker, it's probably a good film, but to me it looks like yet another glamorization of greedy Wall Street criminals "livin' large" and acting like they're starring in a rap video.
He's probably doing something illegal and/or immoral and he may or may not get his comeuppance but we're supposed to admire him and want to be like him or something.
