The final movie in the Camden Public Library’s free Movies in the Amphitheatre series is will be 1939’s “Drums Along the Mohawk,” rescheduled from July 26 to Tuesday, Aug. 16 at 8 p.m. in the Camden Amphitheatre, Atlantic Avenue. Moviegoers should bring lawn chairs or blankets for seating.

The 1939 movie, director John Ford’s first color film, vividly recreates the adventures of Mohawk Valley pioneers during the Revolutionary War and is based on the 1936 novel of the same name by Walter D. Edmonds. In 1776, American colonists Gilbert Martin (Henry Fonda) and Lana Borst (Claudette Colbert) marry and leave her luxurious home in Albany, N.Y., for a small farm in Deerfield on the western frontier of the Mohawk Valley in central New York.

The movies are part of a series of summer library programs supported this year by First Bancorp.
