The Ojai Film Society (OFS) has announced its showings for the summer film series, at least two of which are slated for the Libbey Bowl. “Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark” is on tap for July 9 and “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” is scheduled for Sept. 3, both at the amphitheater in Libbey Park.
There almost were more showings in the park. OFS had initially booked and paid the deposit for eight summer dates at Libbey Bowl, all on Saturdays. But when OFS President Marty Harris approached the city for the nonprofit fee waivers associated with such events, the Ojai City Council balked.
