Staff Report | May 24, 2023 1:20 AM

EPHRATA — The Ephrata Parks and Recreation Department is looking for sponsors to help cover the costs of presenting its series of outdoor “movies under the stars” this summer.

According to a letter from Parks and Recreation Director Traci Bennett, the department is planning on showing four movies this summer — one as a “dive in” feature at Splash Zone, the city’s water park, and three in Patrick Park — as part of a nice night out for families.

This year, the department is planning on showing in Patrick Park the movies “Toy Story” on Friday, June 30; “Top Gun-Maverick” on Saturday, July 8; and “Elf” on Friday, July 21. The department is also going to show “Luca” on Friday, Aug. 4, at Splash Zone.

“Each movie being presented this summer has a cost of approximately $500 and we are seeking sponsorship for each movie,” Bennett wrote. “The cost covers the license to show the movie and set and take down the large inflatable screen.”

For anyone interested in sponsoring a movie, or for additional information, contact Bennett at 509-754-6963 or by email at tbennett@ephrata.org.
