Lights, Camera, Action! It’s back to the movies on Tybee!

1930-350x400The Tybee Post Theater was born as a 1930’s movie house for Fort Screven, and they are saluting their heritage with a  three-day film festival of the most popular classics of that decade. What better way to reopen the movie house than with the first films the soldiers watched with their wives, girlfriends and children in their own Fort Screven Theater!

And as a salute to the community of supporters, tickets for this special screening are only $1 a movie!

Put on your 1930’s glam for Opening Night Friday, March 4, and the exclusive screening of King Kong, which premiered in 1933 starring Fay Wray. Rotten Tomatoes ranks it as the “Greatest horror film of all time!”

Saturday afternoon, you’ll see 1939’s The Wizard of Oz on the big screen, perhaps for the first time ever! Saturday evening, what could be more timely than Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, the 1939 political story that made Jimmy Stewart a star. On Sunday afternoon, you’ll want to bring the kids to see the first ever full-length animated film, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, the 1937 musical fantasy from Walt Disney. Finally, we wrap up the weekend with. of course, that 1939 epic historical romance, Gone With the Wind.

It’s been five decades since we’ve had movies at the Tybee Post Theater! Don’t miss this grand reopening weekend, March 4-6.

Friday, March 4, 7 pm, King Kong
Saturday, March 5, 2 pm, The Wizard of Oz
Saturday, March 5, 7 pm, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington
Sunday, March 6, 2 pm, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

All tickets are $1 for this very special opening weekend! Thank you, Tybee Island!

      Those days seem to be a lull in a very eventful March. Though the movie crew will be here filming Baywatch on South Beach.
