The next movie in the Monday Night Movies in the Park is “Arsenic and Old Lace,” a brilliant and madcap comedy from 1944 starring Cary Grant, Monday, July 22, starting about 8:20 p.m. in the Camden Amphitheatre, Atlantic Avenue. The movies are free, but donations will be accepted; bring blankets or chairs for seating. If the weather is rainy, the screening will be postponed.

Frank Capra’s “Arsenic and Old Lace” tells the tale of Mortimer (Grant) and his Aunts Abby and Martha Brewster, two sweet little old ladies who donate toys to charity and care for their nephew Teddy, a bugle blowing eccentric who thinks he’s Theodore Roosevelt. But soon discovers, to his horror, that his dear old aunties have a dozen bodies buried in the basement; it seems the sisters have a new hobby — luring lonely old men into their home and serving them elderberry wine spiked with poison. Two less civic-minded murderers, played by Peter Lorre and Raymond Massey, move into the aunts’ Brooklyn house with the idea of adding a few corpses of their own.

The movie lineup for the rest of the summer offers “Holes” (PG, 117 min.) July 29 at 8:15 p.m.; “The Sting” (PG, 129 min.) Aug. 5 at 8:15 p.m.; and “The Mummy” (PG-13, 1999 version, 125 min.) Aug. 12 at 8 p.m. Rain date is Aug. 19. The movie series is provided thanks to the support of The First and Allen Insurance & Financial.
