Seeking Midtown Movie Night Sponsors

This summer, Friends of Midtown is bringing to the Midtown Cinema a series of free outdoor films the whole family can enjoy.

From June through August, neighbors may view a mix of such classics and family-friendly films as Raiders of the Lost Ark, Batman, Plan 9 from Outer Space, Labyrinth, The Princess Bride, and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.

Licensing these films is expected to cost $1250. Equipment to play them expected to cost another $3800.

We will not be charging admission to these events, so we’re seeking sponsors to offset the expected costs.

Although we’d be happy to receive a $5000 tax-deductible donation to list you as the sponsor of the entire series, we realize that’s unlikely, so we’re interested in breaking it into manageable chunks.

Donate $500 or more and we will list you as the sponsor of one film. But even six of these donations will cover only $3000, so we’re looking for the other $2000 in smaller quantities from memberships, sales of Friends of Midtown t-shirts and #ShopMidtown coupon books, and smaller donations.

If you’re interested in sponsoring a film or the entire series, please contact us. If you can help in any lesser way, you can join, buy, or donate all from the same site.

We thank you in advance for any assistance you can provide to help bring this film series to Midtown.
