Drive-In and Summer Outdoor Movies – “Sponsors NEEDED”

The Outdoor Movies are widely attended and need sponsorships to help offset the cost of the movie licenses. The Recreation Department is in the planning stages for the coming summer and is hoping to have the ability to increase the number of movies offered. Continued sponsorships and donations will bring these special events to you free of charge or thru a minimal donation. All dates and times will be released in the upcoming seasonal brochures that are released in January, May, and September. We want to thank last year’s sponsor Unisource Electric & Gas for their valued contributions to the Kingman community for hosting the past several summers of movies. New and additional Sponsors are always appreciated and welcomed. The more we get in sponsorships, the more we can offer! Sponsors are recognized in our seasonal brochure, on flyers, in any public service announcement, and during the event with an on-screen promotion. If interested in becoming a sponsor of our movie nights, or any of the other outstanding Recreation programs, please contact Yvonne at the Recreation Department at 692-3111.
