A school where the “cool kids” play chess!

Not only do the cool kids actually play chess, but now they get to have a movie made about them! The new documentary Brooklyn Castle is centered around a Brooklyn school’s championship chess team with over 20 National Championships to its credit.

A few years ago another movie was made about chess called Knights of the South Bronx. Ted Danson stars in the inspiring true story of an inner-city teacher who taught his students to be champions. Danson stars as English teacher David MacEnulty  (who wrote the software program Think Like a King) in this true story of heroism and inspiration. It depicts one man’s struggle to better the lives of underprivileged children from the South Bronx, and by teaching them he transforms their lives and the lives of thousands of other kids, their families, and their neighborhoods.

More details about the Brooklyn Castle documentary to follow!

  1. Hi,

    If I were to be a kid again, I’d like to be on that Chess school in Brooklyn. I just subscribed to your blog and will look forward to hearing more details about Brooklyn Castle. Thanks for sharing!
