Brooklyn Castle is the remarkable and improbable true story of I.S. 318 in Brooklyn; defying stereotypes, it has the highest ranked junior high chess team in the nation.
The documentary tells the stories of five members of the chess team at a below-the-poverty-line inner city junior high school that has won more national championships than any other in the country.
Parking Tip: It is suggested that attendees park on 42nd street, between Broadway and Webster, and adjacent neighborhood streets.
Free, but an RSVP is required.
