Going to an outdoor movie is practically a rite of passage for a Long Island summer. Films — from old classics to family-friendly animateds — screen for free almost every night of the week at public parks and other venues. All you need to do is pack some blankets and chairs and head out early to stake a prime viewing spot. Don’t forget the snacks.
