Garden City Recreation Commission continues its Silver Screen Saturday Nights, with this week's screening of "Hoosiers" beginning at dusk Saturday at Stevens Park.

The film centers around Hickory, Ind., a small remote farm community where the train seldom stops, strangers are suspect and most of the excitement is provided by high school basketball frenzy. When a controversial outsider (portrayed by Gene Hackman) is hired to teach and coach, he bewilders the townspeople, changes lives and challenges youngsters to pursue their dreams.

Attendees are encouraged to bring blankets and lawn chairs, as well as their favorite movie snacks, to the free screening. Free popcorn and drinks will be available. In the event of high winds or severe weather, movies will be rescheduled. Call the Hotline at 276-1202 for cancellation details.
