Another smart use of a dormant ballpark from the JumboShrimp. This weekend the team will host ticketed Movie Night with socially distance rules in place.
Squares for families were sold and extra seating is available. The team engage fans on social media to select the movie as well.
Attendance is capped at 1,000 attendees, 600 of which will be placed in socially-distanced squares on the field and additional guests will be placed in accordance with social distancing guidelines in the seating bowl.
At the Park Rules
Movie night attendees are welcome to bring blankets for seating on the field. However, no chairs will be permitted to be brought into the ballpark. Additionally, no outside food or beverage is permitted. 121 Financial Ballpark concessions will be available for purchase and also cashless, meaning guests must come prepared with card payment options. This event will have a LIMITED BAG policy (limiting bags to personal sized purses and diaper bags, both subject to search). Wheelchairs, wagons, and strollers are all welcome, but subject to search upon entry.
All Jumbo Shrimp staff will be wearing face coverings, and guests are also strongly encouraged to wear face coverings.
This a great night for fan, a revenue driver for the team and a way to stay relevant in the community. In addition the team can start to employ the new technologies and rules at the ballpark with a smaller crowd while teaching fans some of the new rules and courtesies of crowded events.
Join us for a socially-distance Family Movie Night showing of Good Burger on Saturday, June 13
