As the sun sets the silver screen will rise in September at the Columbia County Amphitheater.
Columbia County Community and Leisure Services' September Screen on the Green film series returns for a third year starting Saturday with the DreamWorks animated film Bee Movie at the amphitheater and Memorial Gardens.
The series will continue Sept. 13 with the 2007 Fox 2000 Pictures movie Alvin and the Chipmunks and on Sept. 20 with the 1942 classic Casablanca starring Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman.
"This year, we wanted to make sure all groups were accounted for," said Liz Stockstill, a county community events specialist. "So, we chose one animated movie, one family movie for all ages and one classic -- Casablanca ."
All movies will start at dusk and tickets go on sale at 6:30 p.m. The cost of admission is $2 and children age 3 and under get in free.
"We just want to bring Columbia County some family-friendly Saturday night outings that appeal to all ages," Stockstill said.
All movies are shown on a 26-foot by 36-foot inflatable screen.
The amphitheater holds about 600 people and overflow seating is available in the Memorial Gardens.
Stockstill said patrons are encouraged to bring blankets, lawn chairs and picnics to enjoy the films. Concessions also will be available at the show, but no alcohol is permitted.
According to the United States Naval Observatory, sunset for Saturday is 7:46 p.m. Sunsets for Sept. 13 and Sept. 20 will occur at 7:36 p.m. and 7:27 p.m., respectively.
