Watch 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' under the stars

Pack a picnic, spread a blanket and watch an outdoor screening of "Breakfast at Tiffany's" under the moonlit sky in Cabbagetown Park (Kirkwood Avenue, Atlanta) this Friday, June 13, at 8:30 p.m. Best part? Admission is free. Based on the book by Truman Capote and directed by Blake Edwards, the 1961 wacky romantic comedy gave fashion icon Audrey Hepburn her career-defining role as ingenue socialite Holly Golightly. The eclectic cast also includes George Peppard, Patricia Neal, Martin Balsam, Buddy Ebsen and Mel Blanc (!) And who could forget the theme song? The swoony ballad "Moon River" by Andy Williams. It doesn't get any more early '60s-era, zeitgeist-y than that.

Don't want to bother with the picnic? Food trucks will be on site.
