How do I follow screenplay format?

Scene Headings

Scenes in a screenplay start with a scene heading—which usually needs only one line. The typical scene heading begins with an abbreviation that notes whether a scene is interior (INT.—indoors) or exterior (EXT.—outdoors). Next, comes the location, followed by time information (DAY, NIGHT, MORNING, CONTINUOUS, SAME TIME, MOMENTS LATER, etc.).

Example: INT. BUBBA'S BAR –- NIGHT
