This Friday, June 29, the Narrows Botanical Garden kicks off their Friday night outdoor movie series with The Bride of Frankenstein, the never-remade 1935 American horror classic starring Boris Karloff and Elsa Lancaster. The movies are shown on the Great Lawn by the 71st Street entrance (map). Movies start after sundown, which will be around 8:30pm this week.
Bring a blanket or a beach towel to park your tuchus, though there seems little chance of the ground being wet since the 5-day forecast is calling for a 100-degree day (!!!). Speaking of which, in the unlikely event the organizers do need to fall back on their rain date, it will be Saturday, June 30.
Bring snacks. Bring a picnic. Bring a whole dinner if you want.
But don’t bring alcohol, since that would be prohibited by law. If you were to bring a bottle of merlot in a discrete container and get caught anyway, we won’t be held responsible. Unless, of course, we’re the ones who get caught, then we would literally be the ones held responsible. Which could happen, I suppose.
And because you really love outdoor movies, here is the full movie schedule.
- June 30 – The Bride of Frankenstein
- July 13 – The Adventures of Otis and Milo
- August 3 – I’m No Angel
- September 7 – Forbidden Planet
If necessary, rain dates are the day after the scheduled showing.
