The reviews are in ... the critics love the kids of I.S. 318 just as much as we do! Salon calls Brooklyn Castle "the most optimistic, inspiring and downright thrilling movie released all year...SEE THIS MOVIE."   ... 

And guess who finds Brooklyn Castle "irresistible?"  Just a little publication we like to call THE NEW YORK TIMES! Read the review here.

Tomorrow is CHESSFEST 2012, a celebration of chess and the opening of Brooklyn Castle! 

Win awesome chess sets, play the kids from I.S. 318, and learn tricks from Grandmasters! We'll be at Sara D Roosevelt Park on Chrystie and Houston in NYC (Click for map!) tomorrow from 12pm to 5pm! SEE YOU THERE!

Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz made this video for Brooklyn Castle!  He loves this Brooklyn, he loves this film, and WE LOVE HIM!
