FORT HUNTER — Schoharie Crossing State Historic Site will screen the 1956 film “Mohawk” on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. outside the Visitor Center on Schoharie Street.

The film tells of Jonathan, an artist working for a Massachusetts society to paint frontier scenes at a remote army post, who is away from Boston so long that his fiancee, Cynthia, chaperoned by her Aunt Agatha, travel to Fort Alden looking for him. She finds him enjoying the company of the storekeeper’s daughter as well as being mixed up with a Mohawk chief’s daughter, all while a vengeful settler begins stirring up war for his own gain.

The viewing will be inside the Enders House if it’s raining.

This is a free event and open to the public.

Bring a lawn chair or blanket for seating. Bug spray is recommended.

Popcorn and other refreshments will be available.
