On Wednesday, July 17, join us for a free, family-friendly screening of Brave (2012). A Scottish girl determined to make her own path in life, Princess Merida defies a custom that brings chaos to her kingdom. Granted one wish, Merida must rely on bravery and her archery skills to undo a beastly curse. Paying homage to Brave's Scottish roots there will be a live performance by Kings County Pipe Band, founded in 2010 in Park Slope, Brooklyn. Neighborhood partners will also provide onsite activities.

Musical entertainment will start at 7 p.m. and the film will begin shortly after sundown at Long Meadow North, located nearest to the Grand Army Plaza entrance at Eastern Parkway. The closest subway station is the Eastern Parkway Brooklyn Museum stop on the 2, 3, and 4 lines. The rain date is August 1.
