The Narrows Botanical Garden in Bay Ridge is two, two, two treats in one. Not only is it a lush, 4.5-acre landscape with butterfly gardens, a turtle sanctuary, shady tree groves and a Zen garden, but each summer, it hosts a series of free outdoor films.

The first of the five-film series is the family friendly musical, "The King and I," starring the late great baldie, Yul Brenner (pictured). It will begin on Friday, June 16 at sundown (8:29 pm) on the garden’s Great Lawn (raindate, June 23). That gives you plenty of daylight hours to lay down a blanket or set up a lawn chair and enjoy a picnic before the film (although popcorn and snacks are available).
