So far, the Movies in the Park program is generating rave reviews.
Close to 600 people attended “Moana” on July 21. The 2017 Movies in the Park series is supported in part through two recent grants from The Equinox Foundation and US Bank, museum officials said.
Presented in partnership with Pine Street Dental, and the Sandpoint Department of Parks and Recreation, “Movies in the Park” will feature three more movies this summer: “The Sandlot” on Friday, July 28; “The Princess Bride” on August 18, and “Trolls” on August 25.
Movies in the Park is a free community event, and all are welcome. Concessions will be available for purchase during all movies. All movies will be shown at Lakeview Park, 901 Ontario St.
The park will be open to set up seating beginning at 6:30 p.m. and the movies will start shortly after sundown.
Museum officials encourage community members to enhance their experience by packing a picnic and arriving early to claim a spot.
Should inclement weather occur, movies dates may be rescheduled.
To help cover the cost of licensing films, the museum is seeking sponsors for this event. All sponsorships include recognition in all marketing and press for the series, as well as on the museum’s Facebook page and website, and in all internal marketing.
Sponsorships start as low as $100 and hold a minimum marketing value of $300. Check our website for more information, bonnercountyhistory.org/support.
