Parents looking for a family outing will be in luck the next four Fridays.
Columbia County's Community and Leisure Services department will launch a four-week feature film series event at 7 p.m. Friday at the Jabez Sanford Hardin Performing Arts Center inside the Columbia County Library.
The Disney children's classic The Lion King will premiere on the giant projector screen this Friday. Tickets are free, but donations are appreciated.
Other movies in the Friday Night Films series are Remember the Titans, on Jan. 19; Fried Green Tomatoes, Jan. 26; and Groundhog Day, Feb. 2.
Brooke Willis, an events specialist for the county, said the movies should appeal to a broad spectrum of the community.
"We broke it down into four categories: one that would appeal to children, one that was sports-themed, one that appeals to women, and the other is Groundhog Day, which is on Groundhog Day," she said.
Seating is limited to 296, and tickets will be available for pickup about an hour before show time. Footnotes Cafe will remain open for dinner until 7 p.m., but food is not permitted in the theater.
Willis said a horror film festival might follow around Halloween if the Friday Night Films series is successful.
