NOMINATION WORTHY: The film was nominated for two Golden Globes: Best Actress and Best Motion Picture in a musical or comedy.

Live from Woodruff Park features a variety of different events ranging from yoga to beer festivals, but it’s hard to beat watching a ‘90s classic film outside on a warm summer night. Sister Act will air on the big screen on July 11, but to ensure you’re in the right mood, a vocal performance by Atlanta native Angel White and praise singers will kick off the viewing. And hey, nothing’s stopping you from stretching out for your own yoga sesh during the show if you really want. Or you could not be a weirdo and just grab a beverage and settle in on the lawn. Feel free to bring your own blankets and chair and be prepared to get your laughs and lauding on with Whoopi.

Free. 5-10 p.m. Wed., July 11. Woodruff Park, 91 Peachtree St. 404-546-6744. atlantadowntown.com/do/live-from-woodruff-park-sister-act-screening.
