Grab a blanket, pack some snacks — it’s outdoor movie season on Long Island. Towns and parks host open-air screenings of films all summer. Most are classics or popular children’s titles made new again by being seen in an unconventional setting. And most events are free, even more of a reason to make moviegoing a weekly affair
