Thomaston — Friends of the Thomaston Public Library are sponsoring a special Movies on the Green screening of “Spaceballs” Saturday, Sept. 6, on the wall of the old Maine State Prison beginning at sunset (a little after 7 p.m.).

The 1987 Mel Brooks “Star Wars” parody and cult classic stars Brooks himself, Bill Pullman, John Candy and Rick Moranis. Folk trio Playin' Possum will entertain the audience as it waits for sunset.

Attendees should bring their own lawn chairs, blankets and bug spray. Popcorn and bottled water will be available for purchase for $1. In case of rain, the film will be shown the following Saturday.
