Cinema under the stars

Grab a blanket and bring the kids to the Narrows Botanical Gardens this month, as the Bay Ridge park along Shore Road brings back its outdoor family film series.

First up on July 8 is “Mamma Mia!” — the musical based on the popular Broadway show filled with ABBA songs. Rated PG-13, this one’s for the teenagers, parents and grandparents.

Then, on July 22, Pixar’s “Wall-E” — about a special friendship between two robots and the Earth of the future they are trying to save — gets the outdoor film treatment in a screening that’s fit for the whole family.

Before each show, children’s activities are also planned.

Don’t forget the popcorn!

Narrows Botanical Gardens [Shore Road between Bay Ridge Avenue and 72nd Street in Bay Ridge, (718) 748-4810]. Films begin at sundown. Free. For info, visit
