On June 1 Turner Classic Movies (TCM), in association with Piedmont Park Conservancy, will head back to Atlanta's Piedmont Park for its seventh annual Screen on the Green classic film festival. A fun way to spend a summer evening picnicking in the park with friends or family, this year's Screen on the Green festival will present five much-loved classic films each Thursday evening in June on a 45-by-24-foot movie screen. The 2006 Screen on the Green classic film festival
will kick off with the Academy Award®- nominated, wildly popular comedy A Hard Day's Night
(1964). Featuring The Beatles in their first movie, A Hard Day's Night
follows 'a day in the life' of The Beatles right at the point the band's popularity has begun to skyrocket.
2006 Screen on the Green Film Line-Up: June 1 - A HARD DAY'S NIGHT June 8 - THE WIZ June 15 - FERRIS BUELLER'S DAY OFF June 22 - BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S June 29 - WILLY WONKA AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY
Piedmont Park's "meadow" area, directly behind The Park Tavern, will play host to Screen on the Green's five-week run. The nearest park entrance to the screening area is located at 10th Street and Monroe Drive. All movies begin at sunset.
