MOVIES RETURN TO LMCU BALLPARK THIS SUMMER
Movies from the mound presented by
Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy begins in June!
Comstock Park, MI – – Wednesday, June 2nd, 2021 – – It was nearly a year ago when Whitecaps baseball was cancelled for the first time ever due to COVID-19. The staff began building a bridge to 2021. They knew that getting creative with how LMCU Ballpark could be used was clearly the next step. That’s how the popular “Movies from the Mound,” began.
“We started brainstorming and showing movies on our centerfield screen came up as an idea,” said Dan Morrison, VP of Sales for the West Michigan Whitecaps. “We loved the concept and worked with local health agencies to have families in the outfield safely, and it was big hit.”
Over the summer of 2020 LMCU Ballpark would host more than 5,000 moviegoers. Staff sold West Michigan’s favorite ballpark food, craft beer, popcorn, and even Whitecaps merchandise. Having experienced success, LMCU Ballpark is bringing back the movies when the Whitecaps baseball team is traveling.
“We’re thrilled to bring back Movies from the Mound,” Morrison added. “This summer Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy is presenting what will be a festival of family entertainment.”
