Outdoor movies on Long Island
It's that time of the year again -- outdoor movies are screening at a park, beach or restaurant near you. Warm summer nights set the perfect backdrop for a movie with the little ones or an evening out with friends.
"It's something fun and it makes the dining experience that much better," says Dennis McDermott, owner of The Riverhead Project restaurant, which screens films on its open-air patio.
Outdoor movies are an affordable and relaxing way to end a summer day packed with activities. Most films begin at sunset -- admission is often free or at only a nominal charge. While many venues allow you to bring a picnic, some do not permit outside food. Double check with the venue before heading out. --Dorianna Valerio
