Get ready for an unforgettable experience at LMCU Ballpark this summer with the return of family movies, “Flix on the Field!” Guests are invited to bring their chairs, blankets, family, and friends for four dates of double features in the outfield!

Originally launched in 2020, as a creative response to the canceled Whitecaps baseball season due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this beloved event is back by popular demand, thanks to a partnership between the West Michigan Whitecaps and Family Fare. This unique experience has quickly become a cherished tradition for many families.

“Creating fun, affordable, memorable family experiences is the core of what the Whitecaps brand is all about,” says Dan Morrison, VP of Sales & Marketing for the Whitecaps. “When we first began showing movies on our centerfield screen, it was an instant hit.”

In the summer of 2020, LMCU Ballpark welcomed over 5,000 moviegoers, offering West Michigan’s favorite ballpark snacks, craft beer, popcorn, and movie candy to enhance the experience. In partnership with Family Fare, LMCU Ballpark is excited to bring back these magical movie nights while the Whitecaps are on the road. Says Morrison, “We are thrilled to reintroduce Flix on the Field, and we couldn’t have asked for a better partner than Family Fare – who shares the same commitment to improving our community for West Michigan families.”

“At SpartanNash and Family Fare, we are passionate about engaging with the neighborhoods we serve,” said SpartanNash Director of Retail Marketing, Jessica Wong. “We are excited to be able to contribute to moments for local families and communities to come together in creating lasting memories at LMCU Ballpark.”

More than just a movie-viewing experience, activities on movie nights include: 
– Photo Booth for fun family pictures
