Hartsville, SC – Screen on the Green, the City of Hartsville’s free series of summertime movies, will launch Saturday, May 26 with a showing of Top Gun, sponsored by North Industrial Machine, in Burry Park, 131 Cargill Way.

Top Gun is the story of students at the United States Navy’s elite fighter weapons school. As they compete to be best in the class, one daring young pilot learns a few things from a civilian instructor that are not taught in the classroom.
