Movies in the Park highlight local projects

0608 movies in parkW

Families begin to gather in Davis' Central Park for one of the free Movies in the Park sponsored by the Sunset Rotary Club of Davis. This season's slate includes "Monsters University" on Aug. 23, "Despicable Me 2" on Sept. 6, "Frozen" on Sept. 13 and "The Lego Movie" on Sept. 20. Courtesy photo

The city of Davis used to offer movies in the park but at a certain point found it too demanding of staff time.
“Will Arnold presented it to the club as something we might like to take over,” former president Lou Ziskind said. “The membership liked the idea of keeping this free family event going, so the club took it over from the city and has been running it for the past three years.”
This summer and early fall, family-friendly movies will be shown on a large inflatable screen in Central Park, Fourth and C streets, on four Saturdays, Aug. 23, Sept. 6, Sept. 13 and Sept. 20. Cotton candy will be available for purchase. The movies start as soon as it gets dark. Thanks go to Woodland Healthcare for being a major sponsor, too.
What’s on the marquee this year: On Aug. 23, it’s “Monsters University”; on Sept. 6, “Despicable Me 2”; on Sept. 13, “Frozen”; and on Sept 20, “The Lego Movie.”

Rotary is a service club that provides help both locally and internationally. Locally, in addition to Movies in the Park, Sunset Rotary also funded and built a storage shed for Yolo Crisis Nursery, participated in the all-Rotary Barbecue and pie contest, offered a yard cleanup day for senior citizens and took its turn working the beer concession stand at the Yolo County Fair.
