The Plaxall Gallery in Long Island City is bringing the curtain down on summer by hosting an outdoor concert and an open air screening of Moana at the end of September.
The event is being put on by Plaxall and the non-profit organization Long Island City Artists, and is scheduled to kick off at 5 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 28 at 5-25 46th Ave. by Anable Basin.
Moana is set to start as the sun sets on the East River at about 7 p.m. It will be preceded by live music from local artists and other activities.
The 2016 Disney animated film starring Dwayne Johnson and Nicole Scherzinger received widespread critical acclaim at the time of its release and was nominated for a 2017 Golden Globe for best animated film.
Plaxall Managing Director Matt Quigley said that Moana was chosen as it was a family favorite.
There will also be a beer garden for parents and a food truck selling tacos and burritos at the event.
Organizers encourage those wishing to attend to bring blankets, chairs and pillows to make the experience more comfortable and relaxing.
