Guide to what’s happening in New York this week

It’s inner city versus outer space in “Attack the Block,”?an outrageous 
action-horror-comedy flick directed by writer and British comedian Joe Cornish. Regal Union Square Stadium 14, 850 Broadway, $13. Flavorpill/Mindy Bond


Escape to New York
Friday through Sunday, Shinnecock Reservation, Southhampton, N.Y.,
E2NY stars Patti Smith, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes, the Psychedelic Furs, Best Coast, and Of Montreal, as well as DJ sets by Xaphoon Jones (Chiddy Bang), Elliot Lipp, and more. Renowned warehouse party wizards Winkel and Balktick are aiding with the art curation, so expect a field bedazzled with whimsical installations and theatrics. 

The Love Boat Party featuring Metro Area and Jacques Renault
Saturday, 2 p.m. to 7 p.m., Pier 40, 353 West St.,
Let’s Play House and Global Frequencies are taking you on a boat, aptly named the Queen of Hearts. You can yell “I’m on a boat!” while dancing away to deep house beats or disco revival (for you more adventurous types).


Wonderdonk Bike-In Movie Series presents ‘Pee-wee’s Big Adventure’
Friday, 8:30 p.m., The Van der Ende-Onderdonk House, 1820 Flushing Ave., $7 suggested donation
Head to Ridgewood (on your bike or via the train) with a picnic and friends in tow, to enjoy “The Red Balloon” (1956) followed by “Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure,” both screened on the grounds of the historic Onderdonk House, NYC’s oldest Dutch colonial stone house.
Through Aug. 21, Angelika Film Center, 18 W. Houston St., $10 suggested donation
If “Mad Max” and “Primer” were put in a blender with “(500) Days of Summer” you’d get something approximating Evan Glodell’s nightmarish, testosterone-tipped feature debut. Glodell stars as Woodrow, a down-home slacker-type who tinkers with cars and builds flamethrowers — until Milly, a sweet and spicy blonde with wandering genitalia, throws a wrench in the works.


Summer Streets
Saturday, 7 a.m.-1 p.m., Park Avenue, free
Summer Streets closes off a stretch of street from Central Park to the bottom of Manhattan for three consecutive Saturdays in August. Along the route, find free bike and Rollerblade rentals, sandboxes for the kids (or the young at heart), free yoga and running classes, and guacamole-making demos by Chipotle.

High Line Rink: Made for All by UNIQLO
Through Sept. 26, The Lot at the High Line, West 30th Street and 10th Avenue, $12
We’re sort of pissed at the High Line right now. We’re all for summer fun but their latest addition, an 8,000-square-foot open-air roller skating rink that’s open seven days a week is just too much. Don’t they know we have lives? 

FIGMENT Minigolf Course: Bugs and Features
Friday-Sunday through Sept. 25, Governors Island, free
Fourteen holes are each designed by a different artist or architect, and have you navigate a giant fly swatter, ant farm tunnels, and a flea circus. Hop a ferry to the island, Friday, Saturday and Sunday all summer long to take advantage of this decidedly playful take on bugs.


Through Saturday, The Hole, 312 Bowery, free
Miami art duo FriendsWithYou, known for their playful, colorful, and interactive installations, populates the Hole gallery with an experiential wonderland of their signature pop abstractions.

Create Your Own
Custom Stationery
Monday, 7-10 p.m., Gowanus Print Lab, 54 Second Ave., Brooklyn, $80
Make your puns and original artwork a physical reality at this DIY stationery class. Come away with your own notecards and postcards and never step foot in a Hallmark store again.

‘Paths of Rhythm’
Fuse Gallery, 93 Second Ave., free
“Paths of Rhythm” is a show about being creative in New York City. Such creativity can take many forms, and all are celebrated here — though there’s an emphasis on street art and music.

Beck’s Green Box Project

Wednesdays through Aug. 10, 6-8 p.m., Wave Hill, W. 249th St., $8
Green Box Project places mysterious receptacles in cities throughout the world, whose content can only be unlocked via the free Beck’s Key [iPhone or iPad] app. Find one of the boxes and you’ll also be exploring specially commissioned work from artists via augmented reality.

The Big Terrific
Wednesdays 8-10 p.m., Cameo Gallery, 93 N. Sixth St., Williasmburg, free
The free showcase brings together on-the-rise funnyfolk for a blend of interactive tomfoolery. Comedian-hosts Max Silvestri, Gabe Liedman and Jenny Slate bring the sass and round up consistently satisfying squads of contributors.
