Ferndale DDA is bringing back their Get Reel Outdoor Movies program for its second season. They are kicking it off with "Mamma Mia!" As annoying as Abba can get, you kind of can't help but like some of their songs and Meryl Streep is pretty entertaining in this goofy role. Yes, the movie is a bit cheesy, but it should be a fun one to watch outside with a group of other people enjoying it. This movie is going to be special because the Detroit Actors Theatre Company will be joining for a sing-along. I don't care who you are, if you know "Dancing Queen", you know you're going to start singing it when you hear it. Or it will at least be stuck in your head for a week.
The outdoor movies are held on Vester Street, near Valentine Distilling, and start at dusk. They are always free and you can bring lawn chairs and food, but there is no alcohol or glass allowed. The movies will be held every third Thursday through September. The next one will be August 17 and they will be playing "Grease". The last movie has yet to be determined and they are looking for input from the people who come to watch. So if you have an idea, let them know! Happy outdoor movie watching!
