To announce its Green on Screen Community Film Forum series, The Nickelodeon Theatre, South Carolina's only non-profit art house theater, will present a screening of the new 30-minute documentary River Time Tuesday, December 6 at 5:30 pm at 937 Main Street.
Green on Screen is designed to facilitate a community-wide conversation through film about the impact we have on the environment. Officially beginning in January 2012 and running through June, Green on Screen is a six-month series of films and conversations about sustainability in a modern world.

River Time inspired South Carolina writer and naturalist John Lane's new book My Paddle to the Sea. The story is about Lane's epic canoe journey from his tiny backyard creek in Spartanburg, S.C. all the way to the Atlantic Ocean. During the 300-mile, 11-day trip with friends through South Carolina, Lane set sets out to fulfill his lifelong dream and complete a book depicting his journey.
Along his travels, Lane encounters the history and nature of undiscovered areas of South Carolina; embarking upon ancient Indian artifacts and native flora and fauna as well as the reality of man's impact on the environment while navigating through unexpected garbage piles and other pollutants.
