The Garden City Recreation Commission will present "Planet 51" as part of Silver Screen Saturday Nights at Stevens Park. The movie starts at dusk Saturday.

Attendees are advised to bring lawn chairs and blankets, movie snacks and wear bug repellent.

In "Planet 51," Capt. Charles "Chuck" Baker lands on Planet 51 thinking he's the first person to step foot on it. To his surprise, he finds the planet is inhabited by little green people happily living in a white picket fence world reminiscent of 1950s America. Their only fear is that it will be overrun by alien invaders — like Chuck.

Popcorn and drinks will be available for sale for $1 each and proceeds will benefit the Summer Youth Musical trip to the Junior Theater Festival in Atlanta.
