For the first time in many, many years, you’ll get to see a movie at the Springer Opera House, 103 10th St.
You can see “Gone with the Wind” at 7:30 p.m. Friday.
I wonder if there will be popcorn. And I wonder if I can find someone I can smooch with in the balcony.
Tickets are $10.
Happy bargain hunting!
This really has nothing to do with the arts, but I know many of you like to roam through yard sales and thrift shops. Here are a couple events.
The granddaddy of all of these kinds of sales is the Junior League Attic Sale. I know for a fact that many people line up at least five hours before the doors open to be the first to get inside
If you don’t want to stay up all night or sleep at the Columbus Civic Center, 400 Fourth St., then go to the Preview at 6-8 p.m. Sept. 10.
The Attic Sale itself is 8 a.m.-noon Sept. 11.
Tickets are $10 for Friday night Preview; $1 for the Attic Sale.
Something that has become popular the past few years is the Fort Benning Post-Wide Yard Sale.
The fall one is 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Sept. 18, and the sale is at all of the post’s housing areas.
The thing to remember about this sale is that many of these people have been stationed all over the world, so you never know what you’ll find.
Just remember that if you’re a civilian, you’ll have to stop at the visitors’ center at either I-185 or Benning Boulevard. Make sure you get a map of Fort Benning at the visitors’ center. You need a valid driver’s license and current vehicle registration (or rental contract). Adult passengers should have valid IDs with them.
Call 706-545-6674 or 706-545-2218 after hours or on weekends.
