Village Lounge to Hold Free Weekly Movie Night
GREENWICH VILLAGE — Greenwich Village lounge Singl has launched a free weekly movie night.
Every Sunday, the 13th Street bar will screen two films, a full-length feature and a documentary, chosen after an online vote earlier in the week.
The event kicked off last Sunday with wine-themed films "Sideways" and "A Year in Burgundy," meant to be paired with the lounge's single-vineyard wines.
This Sunday, Singl will team up with the Rated SR: Socially Relevant Film Festival, which is running from March 14 to 20 at Quad Cinema, and will screen some of the festival's short films. Possibilities include "Peace Kites," about a large-scale kite workshop in Kenya; "Wheelchair Diaries," about European attitudes toward disability; "Cafe Templado," about two women in Havana; and "Alegria," about a humanitarian mission in the Himalayas.
Some of the films' directors will attend the Singl movie night, a bar spokeswoman said.
The bar will offer complimentary popcorn, and movie-goers will get 10 percent off Singl's collection of wine and single malt scotch, as well as charcuterie and bar snacks like lox and fromage blanc on bagel crisps from nearby Murray's Bagels.
For future movie nights, a selection of five films will be posted on Singl's Facebook page on Mondays for people to vote on, along with a link to register for the free event. Each week's films will focus on a different theme.
Singl, 80 E. 13th St., will hold movie nights Sundays starting at 6 p.m. This Sunday's collaboration with the Rated SR Film Festival starts at 8:30 p.m.
