Newsday's 2015 Outdoor Movie Night is an Aug. 7 screening of "Paddington," (PG) the popular 2015 movie starring Sally Hawkins and Nicole Kidman.
The free screening is held on the lawn at Newsday's headquarters in Melville, projected at dusk on a giant 40-foot screen. The family-friendly event includes food vendors, giveaways, sponsor booths and entertainment for kids.
Gates open at 6:30 p.m. and many people arrive then to stake out their spot on the lawn, bringing blankets, chairs and a summer picnic dinner to enjoy before showtime.
Admission is free, although tickets are required -- print them early as the event often sells out in advance. You can order your tickets here. Good to know: Pets and alcohol are not permitted.
