September Flicks Among the Flowers: Father of the Bride – Movie Showing

Flicks Among the Flowers Movie

If you live near or around Birmingham, Alabama, then here is a great event that is coming to you on September 27 at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens.

Outdoor Movie Prep

Seeing a movie outside this fall is the perfect way to get in a different kind of family bonding. It also makes for a great date night with a significant other. This Wednesday, you can catch “Father of the Bride” playing at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens.

Don’t forget to pack your blankets, snacks, bug spray, and maybe even a pillow. Some people may end up wanting to lay down to watch the movie. If this sounds like something you could do at home, then you haven’t experienced the magic of film in an outdoor setting. The mix of fall air, soft grass, and rustling foliage makes for an atmosphere that puts a living room TV to shame.

The movie starts at 8 p.m., but it’s a good idea to arrive a bit early to get the best spots. And while this event is outdoors, pets are not allowed in the gardens for the safety and convenience of all guests.


“Father of the Bride” came out in 1991, so there’s a good chance you may have already seen some or all of it. But this timeless comedy is still just as funny as the first time you saw it. Steve Martin, Diane Keaton, and Martin Short star in this film. Watch as a father struggles with letting his daughter go, and laugh at the ploys he comes up with along the way.


The best part about the Birmingham Botanical Gardens’ Flicks Among the Flowers series is that admission is FREE. A $5 donation is requested, however. The money goes to support local educational initiatives. Members of the Gardens get access to priority seating in a reserved location.

With the Gardens’ being recently named on USA Today’s Top 3 Free Attractions in America, now is the perfect time to take advantage of this magnificent local amenity.

A night under the stars is always great, but add a classic comedy and the ambiance of the Birmingham Botanical Gardens, and you have the ingredients for a night you won’t soon forget. Don’t forget that gates open up at 6 p.m., so you can get there early and get good seating.

If you want to make sure you always have an amazing seat, head to Limbaugh Toyota to get behind the wheel of a brand-new car, truck, or SUV.
