Jordan Peele’s “Get Out” is a spooky flick that exposes everything that’s both horrific and darkly hilarious about white do-gooder-ism, following one rightfully paranoid black man from New York up to the countryside estate of his white girlfriend for what might be the weirdest family reunion that’s ever happened. Its slow burn and timely commentary on race relations and white supremacy make it a good movie for people who aren’t necessarily horror junkies—so long as they don’t mind a few creepy shocks and jolts mixed in with the laughs.
It’s also as good a movie as any to watch outside on the water. Tonight, it’s the pick for the Films on the Pier series at Broadway Pier in Fells Point. Bring some food for a late night picnic, along with a blanket and a couple lawn chairs (and maybe an umbrella, depending on how the weather holds) to get cozy and take in one of the best scary movies of the last several years.
This screening comes at no cost to the viewer, courtesy of Fells Point businesses, the Fell’s Point Residents Association and The Preservation Society of Federal Hill & Fell’s Point. Just try to get there early to grab a good spot.
8 p.m., Rec Pier, 920 S. Broadway, Facebook event.
