Aliens have stolen the talents of  basketball players Charles Barkley, Shawn Bradley, Patrick Ewing, Larry Johnson, and Muggsy Bogues and naturally, Michael Jordan is the only who can save the day.

To mark 20 years since the release of the now cult-classic movie, the Brooklyn Museum will be screening Joe Pytka's Space Jam at the Steinberg Family Sculpture Garden from August 4.

The movie grossed around $90.4 million in the U.S. and holds the record as the highest grossing basketball and the third highest-grossing sports movie. R. Kelly's ''I Believe I Can Fly'' which featured in the soundtrack won the 1997 Grammy for Best Song Written Specifically for Motion Picture or for Television.

The special screenings are part of Thursday Nights hosted by Squarespace. For more information and to book tickets, see here.
