The Hellenic Film Society USA and New York City Parks Department will present a free screening of “Mamma Mia!” on Sunday, July 17 at 8:30pm at Athens Square Park in Astoria, New York.
Filmed on the Greek island of Skopelos, the film is based on the popular ABBA-inspired Broadway show, and stars Meryl Streep, Pierce Brosnan, Amanada Seyfried, Colin Firth, and Christine Baranski.
“Mamma Mia!” is the story of bride-to-be Sophie who, after discovering that any one of three men could be her father, invites all three to the wedding without telling her mother.
Hollywood.com calls Mamma Mia “an absolutely hilarious, rousing, and joyous celebration that ought to have you dancing in the aisles.”
“This is a fun family movie for a summer evening,” says Jimmy DeMetro, president of the Hellenic Film Society USA. “While ‘Mamma Mia’ is not the type of film we typically show, it’s filmed on a Greek island and captures the Greek love of life and celebration. The audience will not be discouraged from singing along to the Abba soundtrack.”
The free screening of the film, rated PG-13, is being presented in cooperation with NYC Parks Arts, Culture & Fun and Movies Under the Stars.
Viewers may bring chairs for their comfort. For further information, visit the Hellenic Film Society website call 347-934-9497 and follow the society on Facebook and Instagram.
