“Here we go again ...” Get ready to sing along with Meryl Streep, Pierce Brosnan (!) and Amanda Seyfried when the infectious 2008 movie musical “Mamma Mia!” comes to the Fremont Outdoor Cinema on Saturday, Aug. 9. Gates open at 7 p.m., with movie starting at dusk. 3501 Phinney Ave. N., Seattle; $5 (www.fremontoutdoormovies.com). And I apologize if you now have an endless loop of ABBA tunes playing in your head.

Fathom Events presents two film-related events this week at local theaters. First up, a look at the world premiere of the sci-fi drama “The Giver,” featuring interviews with the cast, including Meryl Streep, Jeff Bridges and Brenton Thwaites, at 7 p.m. Monday, Aug. 11 (the film opens nationwide on Aug. 15). And then there’s “RiffTrax Live,” where Michael J. Nelson, Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett give a comic take on the 1998 version of “Godzilla,” at 8 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 14. For tickets and information on both events, go to www.fathomevents.com.

The Northgate branch of the Seattle Public Library will screen Wes Anderson’s 2014 comedy/drama “The Grand Budapest Hotel” at 3 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 9, and a singalong version of the 1964 Disney classic “Mary Poppins” at 5 p.m. Monday, Aug. 11. 10548 Fifth Ave. N.E., Seattle. Both screenings are free (206-386-1980 or www.spl.org).
