COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Around 100 people came out to send off summer September 11 with the 5th annual Screen on the Green in Columbus sponsored by Young Professionals.

The event started off with live music and games and when the sun went down, they got to watch the movie Captain America: The Winter Soldier on the 72-foot full size outdoor movie screen.

The event was free and Carmike Cinemas even gave away free popcorn to people while they watched the movie on Woodruff Park Lawn.

"It brings a lot of the community together that would not normally be together as well as entertainment, good clean fun, movies to watch so the children can take part as well," says Alicia Cooper who attended Screen on the Green.

"It seems like a really fun time down here, I heard a lot about it and brings community together," says Taylor Shepherd while at Screen on the Green.
