Movies Under the Stars - Nine Lives
Looking for something fun to do on a Friday night? This summer, Dahlonega is inviting families and friends to their 7th Annual Movies Under The Stars series. Come sit back and enjoy the evening out in the fresh air watching one of our family friendly movies displayed on a 23' screen and selected by the students from our three Lumpkin County Elementary Schools.
Before settling down to enjoy the film at dusk, kick off your Friday evenings at 6 p.m. with activities the kids will love, like coloring and free giveaways. Sample from a variety of concessions featuring summer favorites such as hot dogs, popcorn and cotton candy (concession proceeds benefit Lumpkin Youth Leadership). Visit the Exhibitor Booths of local businesses and make sure you don't miss the ad previews on the screen that are displayed before the movie begins. Guests are encouraged to bring blankets and low-back lawn chairs.
Are you a business looking for an affordable, creative way to advertise?
Become a Preview Sponsor for $100 (includes all four movies - only $25 per movie!!). As a Preview Sponsor, your company will be promoted throughout the entirety of the summer movie series during the movie previews. Your preview advertisement should include your logo/ad image and a short blurb about your business that will be rotated on the 23' screen until the movie begins at dusk. This is a great way to showcase your business to local families!
Another great way to advertise, and new this year, are our Exhibitor Booths. As an Exhibitor Sponsor you can set up a 10'x10' booth space to advertise, promote and familiarize Movies Attendees with your business or organization for $25 per movie.
Contact Laura James at the Chamber for more information.
