Grab your popcorn and soda because films are being screened in Brooklyn. 
Gowanus-based Rooftop Films premiered the Brooklyn Drive-in Film Festival Friday night. 
It costs $45 per car and for now, there is no concession area, so organizers advise people to bring their own snacks. 
They are strictly following city guidelines—everyone has to wear a mask and cars are spaced out. 
Screening this weekend is Magnolia Pictures film "John Lewis: Good Trouble" by Dawn Porter--which details the life and career of the legendary civil rights advocate, Congressman John Lewis.
More than 50 films will be screened through October. 
They will review how it goes opening weekend, and possibly expand capacity at the pier, and then maybe even add another New York City location.
