For this screening at Williamsburg Cinemas in Brooklyn, New York, fans lined up early in front of the theater for the event. Before and after fans were able to take pictures with Miranda-Rodriguez and his son who was there cosplaying as Miles Morales aka Spider-Man. In addition to the movie, special Far From Home drawstring backpacks and posters were given to viewers after the movie.
