During the Village of Homer Board of Trustees meeting on Tuesday evening, the board voted unanimously to purchase an inflatable outdoor movie screen for movie nights within the Village of Homer, beginning the summer of 2024. The movie screen will be a 21 foot screen, with movies projected onto the screen.
X101 News spoke with the Village of Homer Recreation Director, Andrew Pierce, who said the movie nights will begin in July and go through August, having at least 6 movie nights. He noted that the movie night looks to be on Thursday evenings, unless there is a conflict.
The movie nights will be located on the Village Green, but Pierce noted with the inflatable movie screen, this gives the opportunity to have the movie night be mobile and host one at the Homer Griggs Memorial Field, Harry A. Calale Park, and other areas within the village.
Pierce continued saying to X101 News the inflatable screen though can be used more than just movies, but ideas like a video game competition, to live streaming a local sporting event for the community.
To make the project cost efficient, sponsorship opportunities will be available during the movie nights where a business logo can be projected onto the screen before the start of the film.
