Families can bring blankets and lawn chairs to Astoria Plaza on Aug. 4 to enjoy the Syosset Chamber of Commerce’s annual Free Movie Night, which is co-sponsored by the Town of Oyster Bay.
This year’s feature is Dreamworks’ “How to Train Your Dragon.”
Danielle Delgrosso, the chamber president, said the event -- now in its third year -- is a way for local businesses to thank residents.
“They come downtown all year long to use the stores, so it’s just a good way of giving back to the community,” she said. She added that the event also benefits local businesses because of the eateries right across the street that will attract hungry movie goers.
The 98-minute movie starts at dusk. “We picked a movie geared for all ages,” Delgrosso said. “My family, who’s all grown up, loved it.”
