When the sun goes down, outdoor movie screens come aglow all over Long Island this season. Town parks, village greens and library branches host showings of crowd-pleasing movies--mostly classic family flicks. You'll want to bring a big blanket or beach chairs and pack some snacks for a summer night's pleasure.
