There's a free screening of 'Florence Foster Jenkins' in Tompkins Square Park Friday night

The city's "Movies Under the Stars" series comes to Tompkins Square Park Friday evening for a free screening of "Florence Foster Jenkins," the 2015 biopic that saw Meryl Streep earn her 20th Oscar nomination.

Here's the consensus via Rotten Tomatoes: "'Florence Foster Jenkins' makes poignant, crowd-pleasing dramedy out of its stranger-than-fiction tale — and does its subject justice with a reliably terrific turn from star Meryl Streep."

A few details via the NYC Parks website:

You should arrive by 7:30 p.m. to get your spot. Feel free to bring a blanket to sit on; there will be a limited supply of chairs available. Bottled water is OK, but no glass. Reservations are not taken; space is available on a first-come, first-served basis. All are welcome!

The movie starts at dusk (8 p.m.-ish) at the multi-purpose fields off of Avenue A and 10th Street.

Be wary of overlooked dead trees when entering the park.
