Mayor Rick Sollars announced recently that the City received a $25,000 inflatable outdoor movie screen and sound system, thanks to an anonymous donor. Taylor will be able to present a regular schedule of free movies for residents of the community. Mayor Sollars wanted to schedule at least one movie this year while the weather is still warm.
City employees last Friday attended a trial run of the new movie system (see photo).
Next year, approximately May through October, the system will be scheduled throughout the community. With Heritage Park is an obvious location, the movie schedule will be moved to other locations like Northwest Pool in Northwest Park or the William Ford Senior Activities Center.
There are licensing fees that must be paid to show any movie. Mayor Sollars said he plans to put together a corporate sponsors program. Licensing fees range from approximately $200 to $400 per movie, an affordable sponsorship rate for even smaller businesses in the area. The City is actively seeking sponsors and community groups that want to be involved in this ongoing program.
