Thomson, Georgia: Family Outdoor Film Shown on an Inflatable Screen in Thomson, Georgia

Outdoor Movies on an Inflatable Screen in Thomson, GeorgiaThis Saturday at Sweetwater Park near Thomson, area families have the opportunity to watch a baseball movie on a baseball field. The outdoor film screening of The Rookie, which stars actor Dennis Quaid, will be shown on an inflatable screen at Field 9 beginning between 8:30 p.m. and 8:45 p.m., according to Bristol Tiller, program coordinator for the Thomson-McDuffie Recreation and Leisure Services. "This is a great way to spend family time together," said Mrs. Tiller. "It's really a great movie." The outdoor movie will actually be shown on a 30-foot inflatable screen. As families spread their blankets or set up chairs to watch The Rookie, they also are invited to picnic with food and non-alcoholic beverages. "It's going to be a whole lot of fun," added Mrs. Tiller. "I'd like to see a lot of families enjoying themselves at the ballpark this Saturday night. I think it will create a great family atmosphere and also a great way to create memories that will last a lifetime." Admission is only $3. Children, ages 5 and under, will be allowed entrance to the outdoor cinema for free. "When you consider that you don't have to pay a lot of money for admission and drive out of town to see a great movie, it's really a great deal," said Mrs. Tiller. This weekend's baseball movie is the second one of a three-movie open air cinema series. A third one, Angels in the Outfield, is scheduled to be shown on Saturday, June 27 - again at Sweetwater Park. The movies are being made available to the public thanks to a $2,000 grant that the local recreation department applied for and received from the Grassroots Arts Program of Georgia. "I actually applied for this grant, because I think this is a wonderful way for parents to do something together with their children," pointed out Mrs. Tiller. "It's a great way to have fun without having to spend a lot of money." Families can start arriving to picnic before the movie as early as 7 p.m. this Saturday.
