The family outdoor movie nights began in September and will continue every Friday and Saturday night through October 17.
“This has been a community effort,” said Fairgrounds CEO Jonathan Howard. Recology and Steelhead Bar & Grill have provided the screen which is set up outside the Fairground’s Community Building.
“Each movie; free to the public came with a licensing fee of $150 which Colusa County individuals and businesses generously donated,” said Howard.
“Our sponsors this year were Allan and Bonnie Ehrke, Round Table Pizza, Colusa Indian Community Council, Mariyn Acree, Ralph Newlin (State Farm Insurance), Gary Teragawa, James Nair, Gina Moresco, Granzella’s, and Kathy Craigo Media Consulting,” said Howard.
Additionally, Colusa County non-profit groups were invited to provide concessions at each screening.
Howard said the outdoor movies are old classic creature features. “This was just another fun way to utilize our great facility and to provide some family fun for the community,” said Howard.
The movies are all shown on a giant outdoor screen and moviegoers are invited to bring folding chairs or blankets to sit on the grass surrounding the screen. There are also bleachers available.
Final movies showing on October 9 and 10 are Creature From The Black Lagoon (9th) and Godzilla (10th). On October 16 the House on Haunted Hill and on October 17 Invasion of the Body Snatchers will screen.
