Filming on Franklin: Tres Amigos & Nickelodeon (+ Filmwax Screening at Franklin Park Tonight)

Crown Heights is usually introduced in the mainstream press in ways that suggest the neighborhood has a "face for radio" (to wit: this NYT review of Bar Corvo from May), but that hasn't stopped videographers and filmmakers from turning their lenses to Franklin over the past few months. Above, you can check out "I Wanna Get Drunk," the latest music video from Brooklyn-based folk group The Tres Amigos (their accordionist is a proud resident of Franklin Avenue), in which our fair avenue features prominently, and those around the area this weekend might have noticed filming for Mission Dawn, a new series in production for Nickelodeon.

If watching movies if more of your thing than making movies, never fear: along with regular movie nights at the Candy Rush, 739 Franklin, and the Walt L. Shamel Community Garden this summer, Filmwax has a new screening series at Franklin Park. Tonight's film, Redlegs, starts at 8pm sharp (seating at 7:30) with $4 pints on offer and director Brandon Harris on hand.
