The “Bad Moms” are back — and so are the screenings where Long Island mothers can watch the movie en masse.

“It’s just a great night to get the moms together and have a good time,” says Linda Shapiro, administrator of the Kings Park Moms Facebook group, who is running a screening at the Elwood Theater on Nov. 8. She’s already sold out at 115 seats and has a waiting list, she says.

Shapiro also ran a group screening for the first “Bad Moms” movie, which came out in July 2016. “Bad Moms 2: A Bad Moms Christmas” features the same three rebel moms. But his time, instead of battling the PTA establishment, they wage war against the demands of the holiday season.

The Davison Avenue Intermediate School PTA in Lynbrook is also running a movie night as a school fundraiser on Nov. 28. “It’s fun to go out and laugh about what’s hard about being a mom,” says PTA co-president Erin Murray.
