Movies in the Amphitheatre continues Tuesday, July 27 with an outdoor screening of “The King of Hearts” beginning at dusk (about 8:15 p.m.) in the Camden Amphitheatre, Atlantic Avenue.

The 1966 cult classic runs 102 minutes. Attendees should bring blankets or lawn chairs for seating; if the weather is rainy, the film will be shown indoors in the library’s Picker Room. “King of Hearts” (Le Roi de Coeur) is set in a small town in France near the end of World War I. As the German army retreats, it booby-traps the whole town to explode. The locals flee and, left to their own devices, a gaggle of cheerful lunatics escape the asylum and take over the town – thoroughly confusing the lone Scottish soldier who has been dispatched to defuse the bomb. The film stars Alan Bates as Charles Plumpick, a kilt-wearing Scottish soldier.

The movies in the rest of the Tuesday night series will be “Babe, The Gallant Pig” on Aug. 3; “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid” on Aug. 10; and “The Absent-Minded Professor” on Aug. 17.
