Movie Marquee Poems Returns

Earlier this year, Saint Flashlight relaunched a new round of Movie Marquee Poems at Nitehawk Prospect Park. We last did this during renovation of the theater, after the closing of The Pavilion. This updated version includes both haikus about movie genres and rhymed couplets about specific films. Special thanks to Deanna Nokes, Mascha Mareen, Liz Zimiles and the industrious crew at Nitehawk Prospect Park for helping to make this undertaking possible.
