10. Narrows Botanical Gardens

From outdoor Shakespeare to movie screenings, Narrows Botanical Gardens is the perfect place to relax while also being encapsulated by nature’s beauty. A small little park located on Shore Road in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, it is home to free screenings of Night of the Museum, Grease, Despicable Me and more.

One of the lesser known parks or screenings on this list, this area is the pride of the middle-class Brooklyn neighborhood. So bring your blankets, food and beverages to this smaller film festival, which welcomes families of all ages.

There are also French films at the Films on the Green festival that runs all summer and a ton of film showings at NYC Parks.
