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.”

    Will we be able to bring chairs and sit in the outfield like last year?

      Dan Morrison

      Absolutely! We encourage either lawn chairs or blankets for the outfield seating.

    Are dogs (on leash) permitted?

      Dan Morrison

      The only dogs we can allow on the field for movies would be service dogs.

      Dan Morrison

      We do not offer discounts for purchases of both movies.

    Do you do group pricing? 50 tickets?

    • June 18, 2021 at 10:28 am
      Dan Morrison

      Unfortunately we do not offer discounts on the movies as we already try to keep the ticket costs affordable.

    Do you cancel in case of rain or storms?

    • June 21, 2021 at 11:18 am
      Dan Morrison

      Hi Margaret, we would only cancel an event if there was severe weather that was occurring for an extended period of time that would prevent us from hosting patrons.

    I’m sorry Dan, but if you want to charge $4.25 for a little circus box of popcorn, at least it could be fresh. Was at the The Incredibles movie and was pretty sure the popcorn I got was from the game I was at the week before. It was pretty bad.

      Hi Marilyn,

      Thank you for the feedback. We will pass this along to our F&B Manager so they can make their department aware.

      Yes, we will have concessions available for purchase during the movies.

    My grandson has severe food allergies. We will need to bring food for him. How shall we handle this? Thanks!

      Hi Kristy,

      We have the same issues in our family with one of our children. I suggest you show security at the gate the items you are bringing in for your grandson and explain the situation. Because I am sure it will be a small amount they will allow accommodations for this.

      Thank you!

      Hi Ryan,

      Our remaining summer schedule at LMCU Ballpark does not include any additional movie nights but something we will likely look to do again next year. Thank you.
